|My Broadbrested Whites this year - so far hens are averaging 12 pounds dressed weight.|
|Midget Whites - heritage breed, average 13 pounds for toms, 8 pounds for hens|
|Flock of Bourbon Red turkeys - heritage breed, up to 23 pounds for toms, 14 pounds for hens|
I can tell you that a heritage type bird will take longer to mature (6 months as opposed to 4) so the price will be slightly higher, but beyond that, I would like to hear from you on what you would want. Of course no matter what, we're talking pastured turkey -- no antibiotics, plenty of room to run and eat grass and bugs and lay in the sunshine. No obligation to order at this point. Sometime in the spring I'll start taking orders and I'll probably do more than the dozen that I had this year (although I did start with 15).
