Game Bird Recipe Ideas

Game birds are tasty poultry but often need a little more thought in their preparation and cooking as they can become tough if older and others have a lot of fat that needs to be rendered.

Game birds in modern times are pretty much anything that is not chicken. Although duck, turkey, and game hens are now readily available they are also still popular to hunt, so considered game.

More unique but still cooked birds include quail, goose, pigeon, grouse, pigeon, pheasant, and partridge.
