What is a baby turkey called?
A baby turkey is called a poult. A turkey poult is a young turkey that is less than 4 weeks old.
During this time, the turkey poult relies on its mother for protection and guidance. Or if they are bought from a hatchery or hatched out and raised by you, they rely on you for all of their needs!
(Oh, and once you own a poult, a baby turkey name really needs to be picked out…unless you don’t like naming your dinner… 🙂 )
