    I am getting a couple turkeys already skinned. How does one go about measuring them for the right size body?

    Weighing them helps, but isn't 100%. I keep a couple of mannikins in stock, and test fit. A McKenzie GBF 36, or a Shane Smith STK-1 fit most of my 18-20 pound birds. It's way better to be a little small on form than large. I use 4-6 tubes of silicone on most birds.
