More fun facts. did you know that the turkey comes originally from Mexico? The Mexican name for the bird is "Guajolote" ( a very funny word, we use to say "Tienes cara de guajolote" - you have a guajolote face-), The name of the prepared guajolote meat is "Pavo" - kin of the same thing as with rooster and chicken-
