Thanksgiving is this week and they don't call it turkey day for nothing. As an appetizer here is a little bit of trivia to chew on about the turkey.1.  The turkey got its name by mistake. It was thought to be another bird that came from Africa through Turkey. Despite the error the name stuck.

2.  To date the biggest turkey ever raised tipped the scale at 86 pounds.

3.  The only turkeys that gobble are males. The females make a clicking noise.

4.  If you happen to be sound sensitive don't live near turkeys. The gobble from the male can be heard up to a mile away.

5.  Approximately 45 million turkeys are cooked on Thanksgiving alone.
