Historically, the American Bronze Turkey has been the most popular turkey variety in the US.  Its exact origin is obscure though it does include a cross between the eastern species of North American wild turkey and the domestic turkeys brought by colonists from Europe. The Bronze variety is stately in appearance. Bronze turkeys stand four feet tall, with a fifteen to eighteen inch tail AND a six foot wing span and varying bronze feathers. Toms weigh up to 36 pounds and hens up to 20 pounds. Today, the Broad-breasted Bronze is no longer used by the turkey industry, but it is promoted for seasonal, small-scale production
