    Turkey - broad breasted bronze and bourbon red

    Geese - Sebastopol and White Embden

    Quail - buttermilk batter fried on a plate with grits and gravy

    Pheasant - served under glass

    Duck - those served at Peking Gourmet with a bowl of plum sauce and pancakes

    Mmmmmm mmmmm good

    LOL, Angela, Suede is out there in his coop blushing right now! If I could name a second favorite standard breed, it would definitely be Orpingtons of all colors.
