Try Meyer Hatchery's Signature White Turkey on your farm for that nostalgic homestead look and sound. The Signature White Turkey makes an excellent alternative to the Broad-Breasted White for those who want a smaller turkey, which means lower overall feed consumption and flexibility on the processing timeline. The Signature White does well in a free-range or pasture-raised setting and some may even go broody. When allowed to roam on pasture, the Signature White’s meat develops a richness similar to that of heritage breeds.
Meyer Hatchery's Signature White Turkeys average 29 pounds for toms and 20 pounds for hens with an ideal processing time frame of 16-22 weeks. However, results will vary based on feeding programs, environment, flock health, growing densities, etc. Broad Breasted turkeys cannot naturally reproduce and should not be kept beyond their processing age for their own health and well-being.
