If you are looking for a fast-growing turkey, look no further than the Broad Breasted Turkeys. Offered in both White and Bronze, this breed will meet the needs of any size farm ranging from small to a commercial setting. The feather coloration is a striking bronze with white accents at the tips of the tail feathers, reminiscent of the traditional Thanksgiving turkey.
Broad Breasted Turkeys are typically ready for processing at 16-22 weeks. Broad Breasted Turkeys are a special hybrid that we have fine-tuned over many generations specifically for fast growth rates for meat production. Because they are a hybrid, you cannot cross a male and female Broad Breasted Turkey and hatch out more Broad Breasted Turkeys. Additionally, for their own health and well-being, Broad Breasted Turkeys should not be kept beyond their processing age of 16-22 weeks.
Using the chart below, you are able to estimate purchase time based on the weight you would like to process your turkey at. Processed weight will be roughly 15 - 20% less than weights listed below. These weights are an estimate and are provided for your reference. Meyer Hatchery is not able to guarantee exact results due to conditions beyond our control. Broad Breasted turkeys have an excellent feed to meat conversion ratio.
