Broad Breasted Bronze Turkeys

The Broad Breasted Bronze Turkey has been one of the most popular breeds of Turkey in America since we first began to domesticate the Eastern Wild Turkey. The Broad Breasted Bronze Turkey was first created by crossing the Eastern Wild Turkey and different breeds of domestic turkeys brought over by colonists from Europe.

The Broad Breasted Bronze Turkey changed dramatically during the 19th century since being recognized by the APA in 1874. The bird was crossed with larger and broader breasted turkeys brought to Canada and America from England and has since been bred to enhance meat production and growth rate.

This breed was the leading commercial meat breed until the development of the Broad Breasted White Turkey, that grew to dominate the industry because of its white pin feathers that do not show on the carcass when plucked. Now, the Broad Breasted Bronze Turkey has greatly reduced in numbers and had decreased in general availability, but it is still an excellent choice for an efficient farmer looking to raise large quantities of commercial quality meat turkeys.

I love these little guys May 18, 2016
Reviewer: Wade from Sandy Hook, CT United States  
They are growing quickly - they are gentle and fun to watch -  this will definitely make harvesting time more difficult. In a few weeks these guys were football size, but started off just like my chicks. I'm very happy with my purchase.
