What is a baby turkey called?
- Little one
It sounds kind of strange, but a baby turkey is typically called a poult. A group of turkeys is called a flock and male turkeys are called toms. Most people associate turkeys with Thanksgiving. The U.S. Department of Agriculture says that over 45 million turkeys are cooked in the U.S. for Thanksgiving every single year. Over 248 million turkeys were raised in 2011, the average turkey weighing 28 pounds.
