A friend gave us some turkeys. The male was a broad breasted white. We did not know that he was a GMO turkey, bred to grow fast. He was friendly and followed us like a dog. He tried to breed our females who were heritage breeds but accidentally killed them. We did not know that he was too big and they weren't meant to breed. Our vet said he was too big and about to have heart failure. It was a sad day but we loved him while we had him.
