Hebert's Specialty Meats

The Creators of the Original Turducken

Hebert’s is real Cajun food made by real Cajun folk. Their true claim to fame, though, is for their unholy Frankenfowl creation—the turducken. The town? Maurice, Louisiana. The year? 1984. After a day of hunting, a local resident enters Hebert’s with his catch of the day: a turkey, a duck and, yes, a chicken. He asks the butchers to debone each bird and, in a stroke of madness genius, he asks for them to stuffed inside each other.

And thus, this multi-poultry mashup was born.

We're not the only ones who love them!

Hebert's has been featured in National Geographic, The New York Times and on the History Channel.
