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?

It's really small, easily would fit in the Palm of my hand so not likely a dick

Maybe it's just cold.

I'm voting for squirrel.

It looks dry and tough and overcooked anyway. I'd stick to the salad. What's for pudding?

It looks like a bird to me, not a rodent or any other mammal.

Little drumsticks on the left, breast to the right. No wings. The 'tail' is its neck surely?

Disect it to be sure.....

and post photos

I'd eat it. But I'd probably still try it if it is rat.

100% bird. I’ve dissected many! Likely quail or squab.

I'm thinking something along the lines of quail or pigeon.
I ate something in a work canteen years ago that to this day I'm convinced was rat. Loads and loads of tiny little bones.

It looks like the egg Blon Fel Fotch Pasameer-Day Slitheen became when she looked into the heart of the tardis.

Think yourself lucky: when I was in Russia some of the fine cuisine - eel soup (big fuck off segment of eel in fat and water),pike, chips with cold tinnedgarden peas on a small side plate, and crowning moment roast beef and trimmings - straight out of the chiller. We were at a dinner for their version of NASA and they adapted the menu for us uk bods

I'd vote for quail, especially going by the size. Cut it open and taste a bit, probably delicious!! Wine

Woodcock maybe? It's definitely a bird of some sort. The bit everyone is calling the tail is the neck skin drawn back over it's shoulders.

The way I am looking at it, I see two front legs with elbows, pointing to the left of OP’s photo. Rodents have short but muscular hind limbs. I think it has had the lower limb removed (no meat) and in cooking they have moved so they are pointing also to the left. There is a distinct gap in the middle, as you would expect for a mammalian carcass. The stump of the tail is sticking up to the right.

I won’t post a picture, but for those who have the stomach for it, google image search ‘butchered rabbit’ (because they are available for sale). Then look back at OP’s picture. It is not a bird.
