To ask what in the holy hell have I just been served?

It looks like rat. Please tell me it isn't rat?
I've eaten many a strange thing in my day (I have a weird job that often requires me to) but feel like rat would be a new low.

For context, I'm in Russia and was served it by a non English speaking Housekeeper who I suspect doesn't like me much.

it's rat isn't it?

As the neck was left during butchering, I'd guess a partridge, not a quail?

It's pigeon - poorly prepared but it is pigeon

Definitely a bird. The 'tail' is it's spine. Cooked rat is a completely different shape. Also, no one serves rat with the hind legs removed- that's the best bit.

This is hard for me, as a guinea pig mama

Your typing is excellent considering your lack of opposable thumbs.

Are you a vegetarian? The picture looks like cooked meat. Confused

It’s only got two legs. So it’s either a bird....or a rat with two legs. Ask her

Small bird of some sort. Quail? There are 2 legs and that long thing is a neck. It'll be a songbird or something. When abroad just always say you're a veggie.
