Broad Breasted White Turkey

The Broad Breasted White Turkey is one of the most used domestic breed of turkeys for meat.We got a couple to feed up for Christmas and was surprised to see how large they got. We gave one to a friend which weighed 28lb and recieved a phone call on Christmas eve to say it was too big to fit in her oven. She ended up having to bone and roll it! While these birds are fairly easy to look after, they need a lot of space and are harder to look after as very young chicks.The meat has a good flavour more gamey than you would get through normal shop bought meat.
