  1. That link doesn't work for me, I had to copy and paste the text.

    I love some of those unusual dishes. They seem strange but are probably quite realistic. I bought the Country Women's Assoc. cook book a couple of years ago and it had recipes for pigeons in it which freaked me out a bit!

    1. link fixed - it was being bad so ok now

      i grew up on a small farm and ate lots of things most never had. My best friend was dirt poor and would hunt in national park age 10 to feed family and avoid stepdad. He and brother drove him off with lethal traparoud the house. Pidgeon is ok remember there are breeds for eating domestic and wild size of smallchicken. Little birds can be cooked crispy so you eat bones and all.Quail ok for gourmet serves or perhaps two per plate. I still think of growing turkeys for hipsters and fattening outrageously for cash. Turkeys are super dumb and easy to clean and delicous. Romans ate starlings on a stick as a snack. As ive grown older city birds getting friendlier - even shy wood ducks will eat from hands now - my guess is there are no poor people eating them anymore. Me and my mate still drool if we see a large legally protected wood dove. Australian bush turkies fear humans not and there are native bush fowl near my dads place i never new existed but aboriginals used to eat

      Ive been meaning to eat chicken feet in china town with some eggs and tripe for a while - yum-cha the best way to taste stuff.

      I was raised to eat anything. Estonians eat blood sausage and pickled fish and black bread so most ppl i live with want touch what i eat.

      Pub snacks next time
