On The First Day Of Christmas, Multiculturalism Gave To Me...

….a partridge in a cardboard box:
Customs officers at Manchester Airport caught Faqar Zaman, 50, with the caged birds hidden inside a cardboard box and covered with plastic plates.

He claimed they helped ease his depression. The birds were his pets and the sounds they made helped his condition, the court heard.
He walked free, the birds got the Big Sleep.

When I lived in Islamabad, beg pardon, in Witton in Birmingham,many of my neighbours kept partridges or quail.

I understand the cock birds are used for fighting, and both genders end up in the pot.
