    Do you know how far that is from Stillwater, Ok? How old is the turkey? How much are you asking? Sorry lots of questions! LOL.

    Quote:201 miles straight down US177 according to Google Maps. Way too far to take my turkeys. No disrespect but that kind of trip would be very hard on any bird and I would not want to take the chance of you leaving out and the bird not making it due to a stressful trip. I have myself picked up a 20lb tom and traveled with him in a cage inside a VW new beetle about a hundred miles and it was a smelly trip for me and my boy and a stressful trip on the tom. He made it okay but I would not do it again.

    Not a problem. I would feel terrible if the bird died on the way home. I'll see if I can find someone closer.[​IMG]
