I have heard that there are those who do not rely on the assumption that
turkeys are like chickens and that since we know chicken is kosher, so must
turkey be. Those choose to be stringent and not eat turkey. I believe that
Rabbi H. Schachter from Rabbi Isaac Elchonon Theological Seminary (part of
Yeshiva University) does not eat turkey.

Most agree that turkey is indeed kosher.
