    My big day won't be until EARLY Wednesday morning, but I just escorted the three roos to "Death Row." The turkeys, however, are much too large to be caged, so I'll just have to hope for the best on denying them food for the last 24 hours! Be the first time I've done anything to a chicken in about 20 years!

    [​IMG] I just pucked my first one the other day. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be.
