Broad Breasted Bronze Turkeys
The Broad Breasted Bronze Turkey is one of the largest and heaviest turkey varieties. These fast-growing, stately lords of the barnyard must be seen to be appreciated. Their feathers have a metallic sheen that changes from copper, to bronze, to burnished gold as the light moves across them.
Babies are dark brown, with chipmunk stripes.
Broad Breasted Bronze Turkeys are ideal to raise for meat production, have an excellent feed conversion ratio, and make the perfect traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner.
Broad Breasted Bronze Turkeys are immense birds — much like the Giant White Turkey — measuring up to four feet in length, with a six-foot wing span. A full-grown tom will weigh in at about 38 pounds, hens easily reach 22 pounds.
