    This is my first time showing turkeys. My turkeys are pets, tame, and friendly. However, I know I won't be able to bathe them by myself. Any other suggestions on prepping them for show? One royal palm, one blue slate.
    Thank you in advance! [​IMG]

    Not sure any of us show our turkeys. There is a guy on the "Show Off Your Peas" thread that shows his peacocks. He may have some suggestions.

    Sorry too, most of us either pet and feed our turkeys or eat them, I know nothing of showing.

    There is a lot of information here on how to groom a chicken for show. I imagine it's the same for a turkey. But the grooming always starts with a bath. Birdrain92 shows his peacocks. He may have some advice. I don't think any of us on the turkey thread are showing our turkeys.
