Heritage Turkeys were almost extinct only a very few years ago.Interested people incubated & raised their kinds but believe it or not, their 'saving grace' was "How Good Do They Taste?" Yes, my friends, marketing them for the table has created a profound market for their flavor.They are slower growing than the usual Purdue & Tyson broadbreasted hybrids.Broadbreasted whites are a rival tough to beat! I know, I raise them.All other turkeys take twice as long to grow & fill out. Do they taste better? I don't know yet.I love my turkeys . I haven't eaten any yet, except for the broadbreasted whites.And~~~ they are good !
