    I'm a member in FFA, this Friday we are getting our turkey chicks, for the first 2 weeks we are going to keep them at home, then after that they are going to stay at the poultry facility at the school. My question is, what do I need to do to ensure that my birds will be show quality? Also if anyone is familiar with the show process involved with showing turkeys at the NC State Fair, I would love some insight. And I already have Black Sumatras that I am going to enter for the same show. If you know anything about chicken showing at the NC State Fair, any insight would be awesome. That's anouther thing, is it safe to keep turkeys and chickens together?
