Poll: What is your favorite poultry to eat?
I love duck! It is heaven.
I really want to try goose.

Hard to choose between turkey and duck but i had to go duck. Never had goose, just it's liver *drool*

I've only ever had chicken and turkey...no real drive to try the others...I like chicken best. I'm pedestrian. :)

duck is wonderful. I just wish I had the chance to eat more of it.
i went with chicken. although one i've had that's not on the list is Pheasant. not my favorite.
Is Pheasant poultry? It is a game bird. Perhaps it is both? I don't really know.
i didnt realize that all birds werent poultry. guess i'll have to wiki it :D
o geez! it's cuz i clicked the link in my email and then i just used the reply thing at the end of the page. duh :P
I checked on dictionary.com
poultry n. :Domestic fowls, such as chickens, turkeys, ducks, or geese, raised for meat or eggs.
So game birds are distinct.
That doesn't make it domesticated. Another dictionary says that poultry is specifically the birds I mentioned. This is a distinction that goes back to the French and came to English with the Normans.

So depending on which dictionary you're using, duck and goose can sometimes not-be poultry, then?
*decides this poll topic is suddenly way too confusing, and is somehow glad she went with chicken, despite really loving duck and goose*
*plays duck-duck-goose with the haul of stuff she's moving tonight*
*realizes what time it is*
*should NOT have gotten back online before hauling stuff up to Sandusky*
No, all the polls I mentioned are always considered poultry. The only question is, is anything else poultry.

Having had all of the above, I have to say duck is hands-down the tastiest.

I am with my daughter:
"Chic-Ken chic-Ken, mmm, mmm, mmm"
Ironically we were eating turkey when she sang that song.

I find it amusing that the poll specifies 'to eat'. I wonder what everyone's favourite poultry to have as a pet is.
I didn't want Ben Franklin to vote for the turkey because he thought it was a noble bird.
