                  After doing some research I learned they were a really big bird at almost 40 inches tall, no facts about taste , this one tastes like cedar saw dust LOL

                            There's the problem! Everyone thought they tasted like chicken...that's why they became extinct! Looking good, Bruce! I'm sure your customer will love it...even if this one tastes like saw dust!
