Beltsville Small White Turkeys
Beltsville Small Whites are a pure white turkey that was developed in the 1930s to be a size that could reasonably fit in peoples ovens for cooking, as opposed to most other turkey breeds which can be a logistical nightmare to try to cook. The toms average 21lbs and the hens average 12lbs. As an added bonus, they are also strong egg layers (the breed goal is 150 eggs/year).
This heritage breed was recognized by the APA in 1951 and has the ability to naturally reproduce.
Our Flock & Update for 2022 Season
We're fortunate enough to be able to trace the history of our flock back through multiple quality breeders and across many generations.
This breed had been declared extinct in the US by the Livestock Conservancy. Thankfully Cirrus Hill in Ontario has been championing the Beltsville Small White in Canada since 2002 but recently retired from poultry and has distributed her breeding flock.
Our lines came to Alberta from Cirrus Hill in 2014 and was maintained as a closed flock by another Alberta breeder who was also working towards the APA's Standard of Perfection. This breeder also retired which is why we were fortunate enough to find such high quality breeding stock. We are dedicated to not only maintaining the high quality of this breed but also to continual improvement.
Availability for 2022
We will have limited availability in 2022 because we are going to grow out a large number of Beltsvilles for our own flock. So preorder early because aside from fulfilling the preorders, we're not likely to have extra turkeys during the season.
Hatching Eggs: We're only likely to have a max of 1 dozen eggs/week available. Feel free to add more to your order if you'd like, but if you do more than 1 dozen I might need to ship them separately which will require a second shipping charge.
