    We wre at the feed store and purchased three bronze turkeys....thats all it said.....how do you know if theyre broad breasted or standard?

    They were at least 3 weeks when we got them they couldnt tell us when they received them. We got them May 18th.

    The royal palms in this pic were delivered to us as day olds on the 19th of May.

    I would say they are Broad-breasted. They have that thick stocky body of a BB and a set of matching legs to boot!

    Standard bronzes would be more like the royal palms in your photo. An overall slimmer bird and not as fast growing.
