Turkey math: 11 B = 7 B + x T

In the past our church has prepped 11 turkey breasts to feed 150 folks at our annual Thanksgiving pot-luck. I'd like to have some dark meat for those who prefer it. Does a 2/3 white, 1/3 dark preference ratio sound correct for the masses? And if so, if I have 7 breasts, then how many thighs do I need to equal the yield of 4 breasts?

And who said we'd never use algebra?
