I have yet to see any anywhere. Every small white turkey seems to be called Beltsville. I'm not even sure I know the difference, between Midget White and Beltsville Small White, do you?

The beltsville are an older breed, the midget whites were developed in the 50's basically as a smaller version of the meat bird turkeys, is my understanding. I had some last year and really like them, they seemed very hardy and calm. I like the smaller size. I have got myself on Sharons list for some of her beltsville eggs, but would like to be able to compare the two if I can. I talked to someone from the Island who said he had some but I lost his contact.

Weird. That's exactly my understanding of the history of Beltsville Small Whites. No one has been able to tell me the difference between the two. I have a lot of Beltsvilles, originally from Sharon. They are great little turkeys. Never seen a Midget White.

I thought they were the same as well, but have read in a few places that they aren't. That is what has my curiosity going
