The article presents results of comparative assessment of productivity and tribal qualities of six breeds of turkeys at the gene pool economy selection and genetic center «North Caucasus Zonal Poultry Experimental Station» and populations of blue and red turkeys. Among the studied breeds best egg production for primary and middle layers ащк 20 weeks of productive period is noted in silver North Caucasian breed: 50,33 and 64,10 eggs respectively, at intensity 45,19%. For the turkeys of the new gene pool this indicator was more in blue turkeys – 49,32 and 59,28 eggs for primary and middle layers respectively. The highest egg mass was marked in white North Caucasian turkeys – 82,7 g, with Haugh Units (HU) highest value and form index – Uzbek pale yellow breed – 83,6; 69,3% respectively. Thus, we can conclude that selection with domestic breeds of turkeys in centre of collective usage Bioresource breeds collection Selection and Genetic Center «North Caucasus Zonal Poultry Experimental Station» is conducted up to the mark; breeds are preserved and rationally used depending on the tasks. Silver turkeys of the North Caucasian breed and blue turkeys of the new gene pool possessed the best productive qualities.
