The turkey is a large bird, which is native to the Americas. The earliest turkeys were probably domesticated first for their cultural and symbolic significance in ancient Mexico.
Turkey as livestock is most popular in North America and Europe, more than half of the Turkeys live in North America. Their popularity is growing in other parts of the world, because these birds have the faster growth rate as like poultry and layer birds have. And, reach their slaughter within the short span of time.
