The Broad Breasted Bronze turkey is considered by some to be the largest and heaviest of the turkey variety. The Bronze strain is an American origination and admitted into the American Standard of Perfection in 1874. The Bronze Broad Breasted turkey is an excellent turkey to raise for family meat production and has an excellent feed to meat conversion rate. However, generally the Broad Breasted Bronze turkey does not reproduce very well because of their large size. The Parent Stock are artificially inseminated in order to insure excellent hatchability of their eggs here at Cackle Hatchery®. The Broad Breasted Bronze turkey will have a shorter natural life span than a heritage turkey because of their large size and have a generally very poor reproduction rate. Cackle Hatchery® currently uses the bloodlines of Aviagen Turkeys, Inc.
