    I want to order turkey chicks next month but I am not sure which to order. I have a choice between the Orlopp turkey or the broad breasted bronze. Can you help me choose? JOHN

    Do you want just for meat?

    Or do you want to raise for eggs and poults the next year.

    I don't anything about an orlopp. But broad breastfed are just. Meat turkeys.

    The Orlopp are shown as a BBB turkey so really no difference between an Orlopp and a BBB.

    You can order any type of turkey that you want. It just depends on where you order from. If your local store is only offering broad breasted bronze (Orlopp is just a trade named broad breasted bronze) then you should seek your poults (newly hatched turkeys are poults) elsewhere if you want them for anything other than eating.
