As the day was drawing to an end I was trying to come up with an idea for a blog post.
I had been watching Holey Moley and then the new game show Don’t came on. One of the challenges was called Don’t Use Fowl Language and required the participants to identify whether celebrities had a bird in their name.
Did they limit the names to those birds that were fowls?
No they didn’t, Don’t fowled this one up.
Fowl are birds, but not all birds are fowls.
Do you know the difference?
For a bird to be a fowl it has to be of either the Galliformes or Anseriformes orders. The Galliformes are gamefowl or landfowl and the Anseriformes are waterfowl.
Many of the birds that are eaten are fowl, but not all of them. Emu and Ostrich are not fowl, but are commonly eaten. Not all fowl are poultry. Poultry are domesticated fowl. It can be confusing.
Just a few things about this post.
Please ignore any grammar or spelling mistakes 🙂 they are intentional.
All the bird pictures in this post were taken by me.
The turkey picture was actually taken in turkey. See: Turkey Turkeys
