How big do standard bronze turkeys get?

The Bronze variety is stately and imposing in appearance. The standard weight for young toms is 25 pounds and 16 pounds for young hens. Since, however, the Standard Bronze has not been selected for production attributes, including weight gain for years; so many birds may be smaller than the standard.
