ugh, why is this so hard? ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Why is it every time I Google information on tips and pointers on showing/exhibition my heritage turkey's, all the results have to do with COOKING them??!!
These are pets, and I'm not cooking them, just wanting to show them. I do well when showing my chickens, but I do not know if prepping turkey's for show is different?
I have the breed standard book, and know which ones are good to show, but cannot find info on showing heritage turkeys. . Can anyone please give me advice?







Married to an Air Force Captain, living on 50 acres, 5 stocked ponds ( I love my koi and catfish ), 5 horses, 2 kids. ( my dogs), 5 sheep, 4 goats, 1 longhorn, 5 cats. 2 parrots. And I'm very excited to have chickens again ( after 6 years)!
EE's, Tetras, Bantams, Cochin Bantams, Rhode Island reds, buff orpingtons, guineas, and hopefully a lot more!

Somewhere on here was a turkey showing thread, do a search.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Nice turks (fond of Slates & RP's, here). Not sure what you're after. If you google "4H Standard of Perfection Poultry/Turkey", plenty of info from all over (some more detailed than others - good for saving spec. pages/info into your own TurkeyShowFile).

Judging hasn't changed much: https://archive.org/details/americanstandard00ameriala
