My family bought 6 broad breasted white turkeys for meat this year. We don’t think they are growing as fast as they should. Can anyone give us a week by week approximation of the weight they should be or at least at three weeks because they’re getting to that age.

Welcome to BYC!
I googled and found this. No idea how accurate it is though.

Thank you, I’m surprised I couldn’t find this myself. I don’t think ours are growing at the right rate we’ll see if we can get them eating on their own. But I haven’t weighed them yet.
