Turkey might be one of thanksgiving’s mainstay.

But why did it became a thanksgiving symbol? Based on studies, Americans preferred to have large poultry for celebrations and birds could be slaughtered without a great economic sacrifice unlike other animals that can be used as farm helpers. Also, among other birds, Turkey is the most ideal for fall feasts. Turkeys born in the spring would spend about seven months eating insects and worms on the farm, growing to about 10 pounds by Thanksgiving. According to an article, the typical menu of turkey with gravy, stuffing, and plum pudding was popularized by Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, published in 1843 and widely read in the United States.
