Good question. Truth is that although most Orthodox Jews eat turkey - as it
has the requirements to be a kosher bird - there are those who don't eat
it. Reason being that it's not mentioned in the Torah & we don't have a
mesorah (tradition) to eat it. I have a close relative who lets his family
eat it, as he won't impose his own chumra (stringency) on them. However, he
himself won't touch it. Bon appetite!
