    Anyone raising turkeys in Florida who will be butchering for Thanksgiving? Love to find a place where I can find a turkey other then the grocery store.

    Have you tried Craigslist? Out here at least, there's always someone with some good 'ol heritage birds available [​IMG]

    WOW!!! Crestview...you are at the other end of the world for me. It would take me about 8 hours to drive there one way and I would do it if I could not find anyone closer. I took someones advise and looked on Craigslist ands I did find someone about one hour away that had an ad for muscovy ducks. Well, muscovy ducks are about my favorite and I went over there and found ou that he has some really nice 6 month old turkeys that he will be processing on order. Ordered two nice turkeys and took some of the ducks home to try in the meantime. Thanks for responding.
