Last spring I purchased some Midget White turkey eggs from two different breeders. The first batch all have/had brown eyes now that they are older. As poults they of course had blue. My second batch are a bit mixed. One has beautiful blue eyes (Frankie is of course a keeper) and the rest all have brown with a blue ring around the iris. I have 3 hens from the first batch and 4 from the second with a tom from each that I kept for breeding. My question concerns the eye color of course. I've recently read that Midgets have blue eyes. Is this standard? If so what could mine be? The first batch are generally smaller than the second that have some blue in the eyes. The first batch jakes ranged from 10 to 15 lbs. where the second batch that were a month younger ranged between 16 and 20 lbs. They were still young and could have did a bit of growing as I butchered them at around 6/7 months. There is very little difference in hen size. Leg color for both is white and of course they are absolutely adorable. Can't sit down without at least three of them fighting to sit in my lap. So, could I have been sold a bum steer? Or do Midgets have both eye colors? The second batch of eggs came from a gentleman that is quite close to me and claims his originals came straight from the University of Wisconsin. I've read that they were the keepers of the bred a while back. Frankie, my blue eyed boy, comes from his batch and I would like to perpetuate that strain, but the even smaller size of the first batch was also sought out this year by some of my customers. I plan to sell some of the eggs this year and would like to make sure I'm not selling something that would be incorrect. In the past I've only ever raised Broad Breasted Whites, so the rare blue eye in them is fun, but not all that important. I love my fat girls, but they aren't all that sustainable. Although my 2 year olds are laying again just as well as they did last year. Of course trying to keep up with those crazy little Midgets probably keeps them a bit slimmer than they would be otherwise. All birds on my property are free ranged and they have been known to range up onto my neighbors 52 acres of CRP much to my neighbors joy. Of course being pets along with potential meat means they do come home for mealtimes and bedtimes. They also like to run/fly down to my son's bus stop when they see the bus coming. How they know it's the second bus and not the first is beyond me though, but the driver and all the other kids on the bus love it.
