List Rules Birds only. Vote based on how delicious they are.

Barring a few groups of people with dietary restrictions, people love eating meat. And it’s a well-known fact that the meat that most people love to eat is chicken. The poultry industry is a massive business in America and no stranger to controversy. But did you know that there’s more out there than chicken? More even than turkey! In fact, there are so many edible birds that it’s kind of insane that most people  only eat a few standard birds. Depending on where you live, you could probably walk outside and catch dinner right now and you don’t even know it! In order to help you flesh out your dinner table with interesting meals, peruse and vote on this list of the best birds to eat.

Obviously, taste is subjective, so saying that one bird is the best bird to eat probably isn’t true, but we’d still like to know what you think. This list of edible birds ranges from the everyday chicken, to birds that you probably haven’t even heard of. And the birds on this list that you have heard of, well, you’ve probably never thought about eating them. We can guarantee that after reading this list of the best birds to eat that you’ll never be able to look at a pigeon or a swan the same way again.

Vote up your favorite kinds of bird to eat. And if you have a special kind of winged treat to munch on, add it to the list!
