Talking Turkey


88% of American households will serve one this Thanksgiving.

247 million of them are raised here each year, with Minnesota being the largest producer.

The average weight of the ones we dine upon is 16 pounds.

For everything you need to know about turkey, from thawing your bird, to cooking with the leftovers go here. Pages and pages of all things turkey and just plain fascinating.
