MIDGET WHITE TURKEYS
Midget White Turkeys - Midget
white turkeys are for lack of a better term, a "bantam" breed of turkey
on our farm. Our line of purebred MW males reach an average of 14
pounds live weight and females around 8. We breed specifically for
small size, thriftyness at the feeder, and intelligence for clever
foraging in a family farm environment. Our mature midget whites are
typically not greedy feeders which is important for families on a
budget! They are known for being friendly and curious. Hens will go
broody and set their own eggs. Unlike other turkey breeds, our midget
whites hatch after an incubation period of around 26 days instead of 28
days. The poults are vigorous and have a naturally strong instinct to
eat and drink without assistance. Hens lay an abundance of large eggs
during the early spring/summer months.
Hatcheries typically sell MW where the toms average weight is around 20
pounds and might not share the personality and other traits of our
midget whites. If you're looking for a small turkey that won't eat you
out of house and home, QCU Poultry MW are for you! If you want a large
table bird, then another breed or a larger variety of "midget white"
from a hatchery might be preferable.
