    I have some nice Auburn hens and no Jake to go with them and I didn't want to raise anymore turkeys than what I already have...I have Royal Palms, Midget Whites and Bourbons who should I cross these hens with to raise up some nice eating ones?

    Midget Whites i would say would have the best/more meat to their body, since they were made to be a minature version of the BBW and have a great meat quality. I would choose your best Midget White Tom or Jake to pair with her.
