    I have too roos that are nearly as big as my heritage turkey hens right now. I've never weighed them, but I imagine that they top out near 10 lbs. apiece.

    Siapans have been known to come bigger than 10 lbs, that is big, but I know a guy that has Brahmas that top out over 15 lbs at two years.

    malays are taller than jersy giant, and about the same weight.
    i have had some the same height sa my tom turkeys!!!!! thats nearly 1m tall.
    they are also 5 times more aggresive than jersys and need twice as much room.,
