Broad-Breasted Bronze Turkeys are fast-growing turkeys that produce ample amounts of meat, much like the Broad-Breasted White Turkeys. The feathers of the Broad-Breasted Bronze are dark with a metallic sheen and a whitish edging on the tail feathers, a coloration very similar to wild turkeys. Broad-Breasted Bronze Turkeys are the picture of the traditional Thanksgiving turkey bird. They are a very popular variety of turkeys for the small farm flock and commercial breeders alike.
Broad-Breasted Bronze Turkeys are ready to process between 16 to 22 weeks of age and will weigh 20 (hens) to 29 pounds (toms). Fully mature toms can weigh up to 38 pounds. Broad Breasted turkeys have an excellent feed to meat conversion ratio.
