We've been raising meat chickens for a while now, and would like to add turkeys next year. We're accustomed to grocery store turkey, and like that traditional taste in a bird we raise ourselves. Any suggestions? Which breed do you prefer?
dont think breed has much to do with taste. Its what you feed them. This I found out when we did pigs one year. The first one was sweet and
because they got lots of table scraps and a mix of feed, the second didnt get as much table scaps and the huddy fed it mostly corn for a few months before we did it. It didnt taste as good as the first.
We like the Midget White or Bourbon Red for taste of all the varieties we have ever raised. Third for taste would be the Royal Palm. There have been a few blind taste tests done and the Midget came out on top.
