    My youngest won with her broiler at our fair this year. Last year my oldest won the same class. We are so happy right now.
    I think we are going to get a tub plucker with part of the sales money.

    I'll try to post a pict soon. I'm on my phone right now, my loving hubby killed my laptop with a nice cold cup of ice water.

    Tell us your story! What did you do to raise the chicks? Can you tell us some of the secrets?
    Tell her congratulations, that is a big deal!

    Ok. Let's see if this works. The kids are so thrilled. The bird sold at auction for $1100.00.

    I thought Thr $600 we got last year was awesome. I was almost in tears this year when the bid kept going up. I couldn't believe it.

    Quote:No secrets. We have a 35lb feeder that we fill. I don't pull the feed out because around here when the sun goes down it is DARK. No light pollution so the birds go to sleep and not eat half the night.
    Non-medicated turkey and gamebird starter, water, and moving the pen to clean ground everyday is all we do.
