Summoning up the courage to eat a bird that has the same reputation for cleanliness as a dumpster is easier said than done. I guess Egyptians are lucky to not have the same conception of pigeons that North Americans do, because they don't seem to have any problem chowing down on the disease-infested fowl.
There isn't much meat on these birds. And the taste is similar to that of, you guessed it, chicken. I don't see myself eating too many more of these birds...they're just not what I would call appetizing.
