Meyer Hatchery’s Surplus Broad Breasted Turkeys are an affordable option for meat turkey lovers. You will receive a hatchery choice of white and/or bronze in straight run. Broad-breasted varieties are fast-growing heavy, tender, and succulent meat-producing birds. They are the perfect choice for the homestead.
Broad Breasted Turkey Toms will grow to be 38-45 pounds and hens 20-25 pounds on average. 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.
