Turkey Takeover

When turkeys aren’t just hanging out in the oven/sauna for 2 to 5 hours at 325 degrees, they’re looking for a bargain. Because turkeys are notoriously thrifty.Happy Thanksgiving Day! (Turkey waving)

CLiC’s money-saving deals are all the rage among the entire poultry community. We see turkeys subscribing to EBSCO databases, chickens licensing Pebble Go Next, and pheasants doing research through Infobase products.

By the way, CLiC will be closed on Thursday and Friday this week.
