Birds have always been an important food source for man. In addition to domestic species that provide us with eggs, there are still other species that are hunted in the wild for sport and for food. Some are quite common, like chicken and turkey, while others appeal to slightly more exotic tastes, like duck or pheasant.


Although wild turkeys are capable of flight, domestic male turkeys (bred to have plump, juicy breastmeat for the dinner table) have chests that are so large that they can no longer fly or even mate with female turkeys.
