We're butchering turkeys for the first time today. I'm a bit nervous. We've done quite a few roosters but somehow the turkeys seem different. Probably because I've really become attached the their nature. The two were doing are the two extra slate boys. I'm not attached to them and they're extremely flighty but still...
How old are they?
Good luck on the chore.
When I did my BBB I scalded it in hot water for a few seconds, then dunked him in cold water, the feathers really came out easy and no scalded ripped skin.. Do the wing feathers last they need time to loosen.
