    Hello everyone! One of these days I will have to do two turkeys, skins came to me without any bones. (Shin I have) Bones wing not at all.
    Maybe American friends prompt me the sizes of humerus and forearm? :)And the length of the neck?
    Previously, the turkeys I had affairs. :)

    Depending on size of the bird, these should get you close: humerous bone 4 1/2 to 5". Measuring from the ear hole to where the neck enters the body, the neck should be 12-13" long. To figure the 'forearm' length, measure the skin from the wrist joint to where the 'elbow' would bend. The drumsticks will probably be about 7 1/2". I hope this helped you.
