Poultry. It's one of those euphemistic words like "pork" or "lamb" or "beef." When I was a kid, I remember it striking me as strange that Chicken was just "chicken," when all of the other food animals had more polite names.
At the end of the day, "poultry" is just a weird word to use for "birds." So I declare today National Bird Day! Here are some beautiful birds for you to celebrate with.
