Halacha - Kashrus:turkey
Submitted by Tzvi Schneider  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: Well there certainly is no tradition on turkey dating back to Har Sinai, since the turkey is native to America and was unknown until 500 years ago. However similar, related fowl were known and eaten in the Old World. The issue arises "how does Halacha classify species/min"? The accepted psak is that the Torah definition of a "min" is much broader than the scientific term "species", and the turkey qualifies as larger variety of chicken, much as cows may be long-horned or short and many various colors, and they all are included in the tradition to eat cattle.
