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.
November 23, 2011 (Washington D.C.) - The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has issued a warning on Thanksgiving Eve. No, it's not a terrorist threat. The danger lies in failing to thoroughly thaw out a turkey before attempted to deep fry it.
