Going to go ahead and reserve my thread. The 3 birds are thawing in the fridge, getting close to thawed.
Went to sleep one night owning 2 turkeys...apparently they can reproduce while frozen, there were 3 when I woke up the next morning! O.o (Jk, the in-laws requested one for them to use as leftovers, since I guess 8 people eating a 14 pound turkey wouldn't leave any. lol)
Anywho, if they're thawed enough, going to start prep tomorrow evening, to give them a couple days nekkid in the fridge to aid skin texture (according to Alton Brown from Food Network, at least.)
About to go out and get a jump on split production.
