    Ok my real name is George I am 67 been wanting to raise turkeys for a while but always put it off my granddaughters became interested in poultry so I have been helping them by keeping some chickens and guineas. Now on Dec. 16 my heart when fool on me bouncing between 30 and 180 beats a minute then just decided to stop. Well after being shocked by an AED and 6 days in the hospital I have decided to go ahead with the turkeys so both my granddaughters and me can enjoy them together. A nice gentleman on this board is going to help me get my start when the time gets right. Poultry to me is something I have always liked and I am going to take it to the next level Incubating eggs chickens and turkeys.
