Known for their incredible flavor, heritage turkeys are different from broad-breasted breeds in many ways. For one thing, they can fly. They also grow at a slower rate (27 weeks compared to 16-18) and have a more even distribution of meat in breasts and legs. For a truly memorable and delicious Thanksgiving dinner, try roasting a Heritage Turkey.
