Kathy,m a reader in Missouri is looking for Midget White Turkey poults to raise. A few hatcheries offer them: Meyer Hatchery in Ohio, Ideal Poultry Breeding Farms in Texas and McMurray Hatchery in Iowa have them, although in limited numbers.
Mother Earth News in 2004.
J. R. Smyth Jr. holds a doctorate in poultry genetics and served on
the faculty at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Mass. B.C.
Wentworth holds doctorates in poultry science and avian physiology and
is professor emeritus at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, Wis.
In that 2004 article, Wentworth and Smyth say that Midget Whites now lay 60-80 eggs annually. They describes them as "a miniature of the large commercial white line, for it has a very broad breast." Kathy tells me that they nevertheless are naturally able to mate.
She promised to keep me posted as to what birds she gets and how they work out. Her experience could be helpful in getting this declining modern breed further distribution.
