Turkeys were very well behaved and I only got one direct hit from a youngster in the rafters!
Looking forward to seeing you all at the show.

All is good, the birds are settled in their coops.

About cleaning up your turkeys for the show, here is how I would do it. Put them in a wire dog kennel/ cage. Put it in the back of your truck. Go to the drive through carwash.

They get washed and waxed and the florescent purple sudzy stuff and rinsed off and then blow dried. The bars on the dog kennel stop those floppy curtain things and rotating brushes from actually hitting them, which might hurt them.

I hope this helps, let me know how it works KB.

PS, I sdont think you want the super wash, just the regular is better, and not as expensive.

Good morning,
Exciting news on the "waterfront", took a picture of a lazy turtle yesterday which didn't look like Blanding's, turns out its a Midland painted turtle, another species at risk.
