National Whatever Day: March 19th

Today's National Whatever day is Poultry Day. Most people know poultry as chickens and things that come from chickens. But Poultry is a category of domesticated birds kept by humans for the purpose of collecting their eggs, or killing for their meat and/or feathers, whether it be chickens or other kinds of birds.

These most typically are members of the superorder Galloanserae (fowl), especially the order Galliformes (which includes chickens, quails and turkeys) and the family Anatidae (in order Anseriformes), commonly known as “waterfowl” (e.g. domestic ducks and domestic geese).

Poultry also includes other birds which are killed for their meat, such as pigeons or doves or birds considered to be game, such as pheasants. Poultry comes from the French/Norman word poule, itself derived from the Latin word pullus, which means small animal.

Most people, especially in Aggieland, love Chickfila so today may be the perfect day to 'Eat Mor Chikin'!
