    I am struggling to figure out how to order the world. I want to offer cranes, but do I list them alphabetically after chickens. I think not. But do I put Poultry, Gamebirds, and Books similar to how I have Birds and Books? But a crane isn't really a game bird either. My wife suggests doing Poultry (and list chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys) then do Gamebirds then exotics. But what is an exotic versus a game bird? Anything that is not a game bird? Then where does wild waterfowl fit in?

    So confused. I would greatly appreciate any help I can get.

    I will have three categories of birds: Poultry, Gamebirds, and Exotics.
    Poultry: Chickens, Bantams, Ducks, Geese, Guineas, Turkeys
    Gamebirds: Pheasants, Quail, Redleg/Chukars, Wild Turkeys
    Exotics: Peacocks, Swans, Cranes, Wild Waterfowl

    Does that make sense? Please feedback on that!

    I think it seems like a pretty logical grouping.
