Turkeys Appearance/Giblets

Hi there,

I just bought a case of turkeys for smoking and one of the turkeys seemed different in bone structure from the other 3.  Almost seemed a little deformed.  Has anyone else had this experience and should I be alarmed?

Also, what can I do with the neck and giblets?  I sure hate to waste them if there's a good way to use them.

In the past I have smoked the giblets and neck just so they take up some smoke flavor then simmer them for a nice long while.  I take what meat is on them and place it in the juice in which I simmered them in.  I use flour to thicken it and make gravy by boiling it to the desired thickness.  Now it thickens even more once it cools so you want it kind of runny.
