The historical record is fairly vague, it does not specify turkey, or any other bird for that matter. It only lists fowl which could be turkey, duck, goose, or almost any other bird. It also specifies that it was boiled fowl. There is nothing that indicates what it was boiled with. It may have been boiled alone but a very popular European custom of the time was to boil everything in one big pot.
