Last New Year (ie 2005/6), chez Menocchio we managed a 10 bird roast:

Snipe-Teal-Pigeon-Partridge-Mallard-Pheasant-Guinea Fowl-Chicken-Goose-Turkey

It was time consuming, but delicious. I can't think of a snappy contraction, though.

What about the pork?!

Pork isn't, technically, from a bird.

Right well, back onto Turkeys...

Older male turkeys are preferred for eating, since the young male meat is rather stringly. By contrast, young female turkeys are preferred because the older female ones have tougher meat.

'I've feasted late an' I've feasted early -
Nae scrimpit meals for the bubbly-jock -
But I jalouse they've begunked me fairly,
A weird to dree has the bubbly-jock.

I've fattened sae that my sides are hingin',
A wee thing mair an' I couldna walk;
Noo a voice o' doom in my lug is ringin';
"When'll we kill the bubbly-jock?"

Sae that's the wey o' it! Yuletide's comin'.
Haverin' hypocrites, hear them talk -
Peace an' guidwill to men an' women -
But thraw the neck o' the bubbly-jock!

I've fleyed the hens an' the jucks richt rudely,
Frichtit the grumphie frae his brock,
Ruled the roost like a king gey proodly -
A dooncome this for the bubbly-jock!

I've garred the tinkler's weans rin greetin',
Gi'ed the gangrels mony a shock:
Watch-dougs wouldna be killed for eatin' -
Why the de'il should a bubbly-jock?

Man's ingratitude! Noo they've catched me!
Gi'e me smeddum to thole this shock!
Waesome day when my mither hatched me!
Here's fareweel to the bubbly-jock!'

'The Bubbly-jock'
