  1. Dear Rabbi,

    Fascinating discussion of kosher birds on Chulin 61 – חולין סא. I have heard there was some discussion at one time where the North American turkey fit in this discussion. Was the final heter based on simanim or other criteria?

    • 1) Some poskim permitted since it wasn’t considered a ‘new’ species just another variation of the age-old Turkey/Chicken family, hence no new Mesora was required.

      2) Some poskim permitted based on a Mesorah that purportedly applied to those creatures as well.
