    I just bought a turkey from the auction friday and where they had the cages the turkeys were on the bottom and got poop all over them. she has poop on her back and loves water but want to know if anyone has given their turkey a bath?? thanks
     
  2. I had to laugh at this - reminds me of another thread:

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/543719/swimming-turkey

    I need to look that thread up - like to look at it when i need a laugh
    hope it is still there....
    Many people wash their chickens for show day,
    so I dont see why you cant wash a turkey....

    Yes you can bathe a turkey. If it's super hot and humid out, they turkey will probably enjoy it.
