Golf - It's Artificial Insemination when saying AI for animals - silly. :) LOL

Peggjam - Making money?! Now that I haven't figured out yet. Trying to... but haven't got it yet. :) The small farmer doesn't have it easy with all the laws out there. I don't think it's actually legal for the small farmer to sell eggs, milk, honey, vegetables or possibly even livestock without all those inspections and liscensing. I know lots do it - to neighbors and friends mostly. I think the laws on selling vegetables are the lightest, and next in line of "semi easy" is selling small amounts of livestock. But when it comes to the milk, eggs, and honey.... they get kinda strict here in Georgia.

I won't comment on my ugly thoughts about that subject.

Yeah, these turkeys can fly!!  But you can always clip their wings.  The way you do that is to clip the primary feathers on one wing only.  Makes it so they are unbalanced, and can't fly.  


I would recommend clipping both wings, as sometimes birds with a one-wing-clip job will become 'air born'.  With only one good wing they don't have much control and usually crash pretty badly causing injury.  Doesn't always happen though.
