The old breed of turkeys we raise (Bourbon Reds) belong to the "Sadie Lloyd" strain, which I'm told are particularly productive. I've been trying to find out more about the strain, and about Ms. Lloyd but can't find much. Apparently she was a famous turkey breeder sometime in the '30s and '40s I believe, but has been dead for some years.

Anybody heard of her and can give me more information...or point me in the right direction?

Sadie Lloyd was my mother. I grew up on a turkey farm that raised several thousand birds a year. Sadie kept breeding pens from several bloodlines, so we had many breeders during the winter. They were all kept in pens that had attached poultry houses. The houses were lighted every night when she wanted them to lay eggs. She use to ship many eggs and poults also. She passed away May 1982. The turkeys were sold.
