If you got sick off of chicken, why is it that you would be nauseated by turkey?
My psychology professor asked this today. I know it's a taste aversion but it has to do with like conditioned and unconditioned stimuli and responses.

The turkey is probably close enough to the chicken to evoke a similar response. It is an example of stimulus generalization. (The conditioned response generalizes to a similar stimulus.)
