There are two varieties of this turkey: the standard, or unimproved, bronze which conforms to the breed’s standard of perfection established in 1874 by the American Poultry Association, and the much larger broad-breasted bronze. Because of their greater size, broad-breasted bronze turkeys have lost the ability to mate naturally and all of the birds alive today are created and maintained entirely by artificial insemination.
