My turkeys are off over the rainbow bridge tonight, so I’ll be here until the morning.
How long do you hold them for?
Until they wriggle free or my arms get tired.
I was writing a whole pompous post, bragging about how I was going to romp to victory in tonight's POD when I realised it was 12:32
lost my banner talking to a coked up fellow welsh fan. not me mind. just alcholol
That's how I sexed my ducks when I had them. The women weren't worth feeding after eight weeks so I gave them a squeeze till they quacked then they croaked. The female duck has a deeper quack than a male. Used to keep Peking Runners crossed with Aylesburies along with Muscovies.
We call that bestiality where I come from.
Nid’s in Bristol I believe.
Perfectly normal behaviour over there so I’m told
That is correct but I was in Pembrokeshire when I indulged in such practices.
That far west is a whole new level of weird
too far glos
Too true. The main occupation there was drug dealing. Saw an acre field of cannabis there. 9ft plants.
How did they get the heat and light on them? Asking for a friend!
RIP. rip torn
No need, They were a long way off from any passing traffic. Natural light is better and they weren't forced. The only problem with them was slugs. You spend a fortune on slug pellets. My brother would grow a dozen (9 footers) at the back of the garden. Local Plod all wanted a selfie with the plants when they raided him.
Interesting! I have four acres not currently being used here...
As long as they're not in sight of passing traffic and protected from wind by say conifers you have an ideal site. Also out of view from visitors such as postmen. Once you've got the seedlings off to a good start and with no risk of frost it's just slugs you have to worry about. Four acres should set you up for life. One risk nowadays though is police helicopters who look out for such stuff in rural areas though they tend to go for warm farm buildings in unexpected places. Back in my day they were only just bringing them in.
All the turkey barns are heated, so shouldn’t look too suspicious to a helicopter!
In a barn you'd also need light unless you'd be happy to have shorter plants but you'd probably get away by just supplementing daylight sun. Heat and light are only needed when they're being forced. Normal light and heat grows a more relaxed plant.
all the best nid time for bed,
