is there a handy growth chart somewhere? - Page 2

post #11 of 15

3bratz, that looks like a hen to me.

And yes, there are turkey charts -- they originated in an awesome book I found at a used bookstore: Turkey Management by Marsden and Martin published in 1945 (when everyone had heritage turkeys). The info from the book has been republished in a new booklet published here:
http://www.albc-usa.org/EducationalResources/turkeys.html#manual

I forget which chapter has the chart, might be chapter 13.
Good luck!

That is a big suprise to me as much as you talk about preserving the heritage turkey. I figured you would be a member of the ALBC or the SPPA, we are proud members of both and don't see you there either. I have mentioned the RHT yahoo group to you before.

You can preserve something with out being a member of the clubs.

I farm full time for my living and I just don't have extra money to fork out, to be a member of a group at this time.

I don't recall you mentioning the RHT yahoo group before.

A thousand voices carry further than just one and it's a good thing people did or we would be talking about BB type turkeys and trying to remember what the heritage turkeys were.

Agreed. It is a good thing, but like I said simply can not afford to pay money to a club at this time. Still I can preserve and not be a member, right ?? So that makes me lesser of a person to not join a club ??

Not at all it would never make you a lesser person if you are a member or not. By the way the RHT yahoo group is free and there are lots of members right in your area. The group was started in the PNW
