Could someone who knows both of these breeds well please give me a side-by-side comparison? I'm specifically interested in size, temperament, taste, health, broodiness, maternal aptitude, and whatever else I might be missing. I'm thinking about raising some next spring so that I don't have to buy next Thanksgiving's main dish. What attracts me to these two, to be honest, is their size. I can't handle a 40 lb bird, but 15 lbs is much more manageable. If it works out, I would consider keeping a trio as breeding stock going forward. What can you tell me? Oh, and I live in Minnesota, so I'd have to either go through Stromberg's Hatchery for Midget Whites or Urch/Turnlund for Beltsville Small White, because, as I understand it, poults have to go through a series of tests if they're shipped from out of state. Does anyone know if I can get hatching eggs from out of state? I sure appreciate everyone's willingness to share their knowledge. For newbies like me, it's such a relief to get such great advice.
