I am sitting here reading my new issue of Wired magazine when I came across a small article about Grimod de la Reyniere recipe from 1807 called Roti sans pareil or Roast without Equal. It takes 17 birds and makes the Turducken sound rather quite tame. here is the recipe and I really hope someone tries this.

A bustard stuffed with a turkey, which is in turn stuffed with a goose, which is then stuffed with a pheasant, which is in turn stuffed with a chicken, which in turn is stuffed with a duck, which is in turn stuffed with a guinea fowl, which is in turn stuffed with a teal, which in turn is stuffed with a woodcock, which is in turn stuffed with a partridge, which is in turn stuffed with a plover, which in turn is stuffed with a lapwing, which is in turn stuffed with a quail, which in then stuffed with thrush, which in turn is stuffed with a lark, which in turn is stuffed with a ortolan bunting, which in turn is stuffed with a garden warbler, which in turn is stuffed with a beautiful olive that is stuffed with anchovies and capers.

good luck!
