Turkey Wishbone Location?

where is the wishbone located in the turkey?
I can't find it and I want to use it.
Will the turkey wishbone help me decide on to stay married or divorce this year?
This is a serious question, I believe in this kind of stuff. Please help me find the Turkey Wishbone.

Forget about the wishbone and look at the turkey who's causing you to consider divorce.

The forked furcula bone or whishbone is located between the breast and neck of a chicken, or other fowl, is popularly called the wishbone or Merrythought-the latter being the much older term-named after the custom which has incorporated it since at least the 17th century. Two people take hold of either side of the bone, some insist they must use their little fingers only, and pull until it breaks. Whoever gets the largest piece can make a wish which, if not told to anyone, will come true. Nowadays mainly done by children, the custom is first described by John Aubrey in 1686, although the word 'Merrythought' appears in earlier 17th-century contexts.

I hope you can find the location.
