    Does anyone know if broad breasted bronze turkeys can breed naturally? As opposed to the white hollands that have to be artificially inseminated?

    BBB Males are just too big and breasty to breed the Hens. But The hens can be bred from other breeds. My 2 BBB Hens were bred up to Narraganset and Royal Palm Toms this year no problem.
