take your pick!

i know this isn't exactly a diagram, but i came across this picture and thought it was pretty great.
1. Turkey, 2. Goose, 3. Barbary duck, 4. Guinea fowl, 5. Mallard, 6. Poussin, 7. Quail, 8. Partridge, 9. Pigeon squab, 10. Pheasant, 11. Chicken, 12. Aylesbury duck.
i think the idea behind this was "cook a bird for each of the 12 days of christmas."
gosh, that's a lot of birds! who wants to attempt it and have me for dinner for 12 nights?


  1. How about I stuff each one inside the other until we have a giant Turgoodufowquatridgen all in one night?

  2. yes, please! i forsee a post-shooting party.

  3. I came across a recipe that asked for chicken back. What is chicken back? Do I need to go to a butcher to purchase or is it sold at supermarkets, too? Any idea, Lady Butcher?
