    The White Broad Breasted Turkey is the most common of commercial broad breasted strains of eating Turkeys on the market today. The White Broad Breasted Turkey is also one of the largest of the breeds and generally are not able to reproduce very well. The parent stock are artificially inseminated in order to insure excellent hatch ability here at Cackle Hatchery[​IMG]. They also have a shorter lifespan than the heritage breeds as they are primarily bred for meat production. They have an excellent feed to meat conversion ratio and Cackle Hatchery[​IMG] currently uses the bloodlines of Aviagen Turkeys, Inc. Most Americans at Thanksgiving time are setting down to a table with a White Broad Breasted Turkey. The general White Turkey was admitted into the American Standard of Perfection in 1874

    The Midget White, with its broad breast, has the appearance of a miniature of the commercial Broad Breasted White turkey. This quality provides the variety with good meat production and makes the Midget White a fine table fowl. The variety was developed from a cross of a commercial Broad Breasted White turkey and an exhibition Royal Palm. Midget White toms average 13 lbs., hens average 8 lbs. In Wisconsin, the birds were selected for higher egg production, fertility, and hatchability. The hens laid an average of 60-80 large eggs per year, weighing only three to five grams less than those of the broad breasted white turkey. Hatchability was 75-80%.

    When breeding Midget White turkeys, care should be taken in the selection of breeding stock to retain the small size of the breed. Once the young turkeys are well feathered they have the ability to fly, so care must be taken to prevent escape. Adult Midget Whites are less likely to take flight as they get heavier. These diminutive turkeys are unusually friendly and will approach people and pets without much concern.
