Storey's Guide to Raising Turkeys

"A renaissance is underway," says the author, "a renewed interest in keeping
poultry in backyards, homesteads, and small diversified farms. Fueling
this movement are concerns about food safety and a craving for better
flavor and nutrition."

The contents of the book cover the health, breeds, protection and processing of turkeys as well as the equipment
and feeds needed for raising the birds effectively. Illustrations, charts and a glossary of terms are included.

How to Hold a Turkey

The proper way to hold a turkey is to wrap one arm around the bird so that its head faces  forward and your hand is supporting the breast. With the other hand, you reach across  and hold both of its shanks firmly but gently.

In this way the turkey is under control, well
supported, and unable to flap its wings, which could cause bruising.
