Usage: Turkey is a great sign to teach your infant in the weeks leading up to the holiday season. That way she can use the sign at the family meals at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

The same sign is used for both the live bird and the food. But, we would use the sign for just one of those uses, it is confusing to a young child to use the same word for both, because they do not yet make the connection between the bird and the food.
