November 21, 2017 (Fletcher Hlls) – Ten-year-old Luke Lumsden of Alpine was recently invited to bring his Blue Heritage turkey named Tire to the Fletcher Hills Library in El Cajon for a special pre-Thanksgiving presentation to children.
The breed is named for his blue tint. Luke got the turkey as a chick from Richard and Marcia Edwords about 15 months ago and has raised it as a pet “which he loves—not for cooking,” says Luke’s grandfather, Craig Linden.
