Learn how to prepare kosher birds

Kosher Birds

Kosher birds include: duck, goose, chicken, turkey, guineafowl and many others. As a general principle, scavenging birds such as vultures and birds of prey such as hawks and eagles (which will eat carrion when they find it) are not considered kosher, while other birds generally are. Leviticus outlines the non-kosher birds; in practice, the identities of the birds listed as non-kosher are not all known, so religious authorities have restricted consumption to specific birds for which Jews have passed down a tradition from generation to generation. Thus birds such as songbirds, which are consumed as delicacies in many societies, may ne kosher in theory, but are not eaten in kosher homes.
