Broad Breasted White turkeys are one of the most common and largest breeds of turkey available in the United States. Commercially, they are the most widely used breed of domestic turkey for meat. The Broad Breasted White's size makes it a great addition to any table. Mature females weigh in at 25 lb. while mature males tip the scale at 45 lb. in 20 weeks. Being so large, with shorter legs and shorter breast bones, this breed is unable to reproduce naturally. These strong, hardy, docile birds are very good at producing meat, cannot fly, and are not long lived birds.
