Answer: Hindi Bird
If ever there was a confused starting point in the animal kingdom, the humble turkey is it. There are several types of turkey, all native to America, with the wild turkey (the same as the native turkey) is the most famous because it is the variety found in North American forests and is served by millions of every year on Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners across the United States .
When European explorers first met wild turkeys in their survey of North America, they donated the name "turkey" to them because they mistakenly identified them as a type of pearl fowl as those usually found in Europe. These pearls were generally known as "kalkonkoqs" to Europeans because the majority of birds imported to Europe were there through trade routes passing through Turkey / Turkey. The wrong name was just the beginning of a long process of poor turkey which was incorrectly identified. When turkeys were taken from North America to other parts of the world, each new region had arrived a strong tendency to allocate its origins to somewhere exotic (usually associates the bird with which colonial unit that introduced the bird to the region).  In Cambodia and Greece, the bird is known as a "French Chicken or French Bird". In many Arab speaking countries it is known as a "Roman / Greek / Byzantine / Ethiopian pile or chicken". In Malaysia it is known as a "Dutch chicken". In Turkey, the bird's real name companion, used by North Americans, is known as a "Hindi" bird, referring to its origins in India. In fact, the bird is called Indian, from India or any variant of it in Armenia, France, Georgia, Israel, Italy, Poland, Russia and Ukraine.
