I'm not a turkey plucker
« on: June 15, 2015, 09:55:56 am »
hello, we are thinking of getting some turkeys for growing on for Xmas time.  Only about a half dozen this year.
Anyone know where in the Gloucester area I could get them plucked?


Already do ducks and geese in the Wildfowling season by hand and don't want any more to do :-)


Thanks


Nic

For half a dozen, you could do them by hand - they're not nearly so bad as ducks and geese as they have no down, just relatively few big feathers. I dread doing the geese despite having a plucking machine - so I always do them first, the turkeys are a breeze in comparison!
