Broad-Breasted Turkey Meat

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

So I wanted to do a couple broad-breasted turkeys for butcher this year. Ive never ate home grown turkey but... is it good? How does it taste? Also what is the average life span of a Broad breasted turkey? i heard its short. One more thing, when do you butcher a BB? What age? Thanks!

More interested, here, in the ethology than the eating. However, couple of good references (one brief and to point - the other covering all aspects of turkey production).

(Don't let the "heritage on pasture" throw you off - pretty much everything down to the diameter of grit for various aged birds):
