For more than 30 years, the professional trained turkey experts that make up the Turkey Talk-Line have been answering turkey related questions each holiday season, according to butterball.com.

The hotline, which is open every November and December, has 50 plus experts to answer more than 100,00 questions for thousands of households around the United States and Canada.

The hotline started back in 1981 when six home economists worked the phones that holiday season to answer 11,000 turkey-cooking questions, according to its website.

Since then the Turkey Talk-Line has grown in both the number of calls answered and experts responding.

In addition to calling the hotline, Butterball has adjusted to the times and today you can connect with the Talk-Line through social media, live chat, texting and even Amazon Alexa.

Their Butterball experts are available to answer your questions by phone, online chat and email.

Call 800-BUTTERBALL (800-288-8372) or text 844-877-3456.
