Enough of chickens.
What do you know about turkeys?

Where does the turkey come from? Not Turkey.
The Portuguese call it Peru. Is this the correct answer?
The Swedes call it Kalcoen (or something similar). Is this Calcún in Mexico?
Why does Spanish use the word Pavo for both turkey and peacock?
These are unrelated birds, one from the New World, one from the Old

@Brute: nice sentences, but I have a couple of remarks:

Mexico's touristy city is Cancún, not Calcún.

And in Spanish, a turkey is a "pavo" and a peacock is a "pavorreal".
(Similar words, but not the same)

The Latin name for a peacock is also pavo. Does the real part of pavorreal mean royal oo just real in this contextThe French call a turkey "dindon or dinde".
I wonder if this means Indian (d'Inde)?

A bilingual "menu do dia" outside a bar in Portugal had TURKEY V PERU written in large letters at the top. A crowd of English football supporters came in expecting to see an international football match. Instead they had a turkey lunch!!

hope you can understand me.
I must jump in and say that I agree with Lee Ying. Yo creo que Dios creó a los animales adultos. Por lo tanto, el pollo llegó primero.

Are you sure? And did He create first dinosaurs and later the chicken, a few years ago? Adults? I don't believe very much in God, but if He exists I'm sure He is enough intelligent to let the Nature act.

I don't want to start a theological discussion here. Many, many people who are a LOT smarter than I am have gotten stuck in the discussions about creation vs. evolution, and I am not equipped to attempt to convince you of what I believe. Let's just say that I absolutely believe the creation story as told in Genesis in the Bible. There are certain aspects of the story that I take in faith ... because I believe that if God is worth my faith in Him, He is BIGGER than anything that I can understand with my little tiny brain. So I don't need to have all of my questions (like those about dinosaurs and about the progression of nature....)

I don't want to discuss, either, don't worry. But my mind is too logical to believe everything the Bible says, above all the Old Testament, things that, when Jesus came, changed completely, above all the point of view of the women in the world. I'm Catholic, and Catholic Religion agree with Evolution Theory.

[...]

No idea about the origin of the French words, but "real" in this case, alludes to "royal" without a doubt because of the "ornamental" feathers of those birds.
