dontcry commented on the word fried prairie chicken
It calls for one young prairie chicken. I'm not sure what that is -- if it's a nickname like a 'prairie oyster' or 'cow pattie' -- or if it's an actual chicken.

Feathers--used for display purposes. I wouldn't try frying one of these creatures. They're a protected species, and some are endangered. :-)
Ahhh... Display feathers. That IS fancy!
Laura Ingalls Wilder talks about having prairie chickens for dinner. But that was before (maybe not long before) they were endangered.
Yes, that was back when there was still enough prairie to be a prairie chicken. :-(
