We've killed and eaten our own chickens - it wasn't a fun task but it was very quick and the quality of life they had was first class.

When I was about 9 years, 4 months and 3 days old, I innocently walked into the backitchin - on the table were 3 or 4 poor little cotton tails with their innards hanging out and spread over the kitchin table. My father stood over them with a sweaty brow and a bloody big bloody knife. I may have done one of them silent screams like in "the Grudge".

So, I reiterate ...Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooo

I've had horse a couple of times in France and (I think) Belgium.  Both times it was a good cut cooked well and was lovely :)  I like venison and most other game but can't stand the thought of pigeon since coming to London.  My favourite is still roast beef though :)

  I've eaten plenty of camel (tasty) here......

I've heard the best way to cook one is on a spit.....

For me a good joint of pig the fattier the joint the better, pork is affordable and sometimes you get a lot of meat for not to much money. :)

I've eaten kangaroo at a restaurant on Anglesey.  It was quite nice, a cross between lamb and beef is how I can best describe it.

Roo is lovely- quite a rich meat but needs careful cooking, if just a little bit overcooked it goes tough quickly.
Had some Ostrich in Aberdeen, that was good too.  Tried crocodile too but it wasn't great.
Yeah I love pork as well!

Have had a meal of rabbit, potatoes & gravy- although don't remember it being much different to chicken although I was hungover in Prague..

What other animals have people eaten?  I've eaten plenty of camel (tasty) here, and kangaroo (also tasty) in Aus..  Have never killed/ prepared my own though.

Rabbit is quite a healthy form of meat, and tastes great in a casserole. Us carnivores should eat more of it in preference to 'red' meat. Not had it for a while, but remember it tasting pretty good - very fresh as I killed it myself. My 11 year old son had it in Skiathos last May and said it was very tasty :P
