2022 Turkey sale is quickly approaching and final plans are taking shape. Every fall the club harvest sell's' fresh dressed turkeys to the general public as our club's main fundraiser. The Poultry Science Club plans to manage the sale in the same manner as we did in 2021. We have heard our customers and have started our birds later this year to bring down the average bird weights. We are targeting birds for the 16-19 pound range this year. The sale itself will be similar to last year in that we will take pre-orders and pick up will ONLY on Sunday November 20, 2022. There will be an electronic on-line form to complete to start the pre-order process. We hope to have the form go live at 12:00 NOON on October 14th, 2022. You will receive a confirmation of your order within 48 hours.

This site will also announces when birds are sold-out for 2022.

1.  Turkeys will be between 16 and 19 pounds this year. 

2.  All birds will be first come first serve.  ONLY ONE (1) turkey may be ordered per person.  The Pre-order form link above will go live at 12:00 Noon on October 14, 2022.  Orders will be time stamped and taken on a first come, first serve basis. Once birds are sold out we will develop a waiting list. You will be contacted when your order has been accepted or you are on the wait list. Last year we had 20 people that placed orders not show up, so the waiting list allowed us to sell these birds.

3.  The pricing will be a flat rate per turkey, depending on the turkeys grade. All #1’s will be $42 each, # 2's (very limited number) will be $35 each.

4.  We can only accept Cash and Checks (Made out to "Penn State Poultry Science Club")  We cannot take credit cards.  

5.  FOR CONFIRMED PRE-ORDERS, Pick up days will be on Sunday November 20th, 2022 in 30 minute blocks due to the lack of parking and space for vehicles at the pick-up site.   WAITING LIST TURKEYS WILL CALLED AS SOON AS WE KNOW WE HAVE A CANCELATION ON SUNDAY AS WELL. You will drive up, show your confirmation e-mail, pay for your order by cash or check made out to "Penn State Poultry Science Club" and received your Turkey at the designated time sent to you by e-mail prior to your pick up date.  If, something comes up and you need to change your pick up time you will need to contact us to arrange for a change. However, this sale is during the fall break for the University and student housing closes which makes driving back to distribute birds beyond Sunday extremely difficult. 

6.  Any Turkeys not picked up within 2 hours of the designated pick up time will be distributed to individuals on the waiting list. We will start contacting people on the waiting list if someone cancels their order or at the end of pick up time on Sunday at 3:00 pm.  Once all sold we will also let the people on the waiting list know they as well by e-mail.
