Turkey that gobble gobbles and is eaten on Thanksgiving is, in Hebrew, תרנגול הודו – literally, chicken of India (think American Indian).
But the country Turkey is טורקיה .
יש טיסות זולות לאיטליה דרך טורקיה.
There are cheap tickets to Italy via Turkey.
Another spelling of Turkey in Hebrew is תורכיה, though טורקיה is used more widely today as it follows the rules of a foreign t sound represented by ט , and a foreign k sound represented by ק .
