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.

Data sources
This map uses data by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO)  (last accessed March 2018). (last accessed March 2018). We aim to map as complete data as possible and therefore estimate data for missing values. In some cases, missing data for very small territories is not used in the cartogram and that area is therefore omitted in the map.

All modification to the original data source are noted in our data sheets.
