Guinea Hen, Pheasant or Capon?

jdubboston | Nov 13, 2007 12:53 PM

Looking for an interesting alternative for Thanksgiving dinner.... I've got five eating meat, two of whom are teenagers as well as one relatively unadventurous adult.

Any suggestions? Capon was my first reaction, but thought given the holiday, that wild game bird would be better. Can anyone give me a rundown on the difference in taste of guinea hen, pheasant or partridge, even?

I am planning on a basic roasting, basting, etc, nothing too fancy. My mother will be making a stuffing including pecans.

Thanks much...
