Do you have birds in your wargaming miniatures collection?

No. None.
I had some, but the 28mm cats ate them.
Yes. I have scale appropriate avian animals.
I have groups of birds mounted on one base.
I have minis of all the members of Flock of Seagulls.
I have that one falconer figure.
I haz a armee of penguinz!
I have giant/fantasy bird mounts.
I have giant/fantasy bird monsters.
I paint pigeon poop on my terrain statues.
In have minis of people dressed up as birds.
I have a cooked turkey on a platter terrain bit.
I have figures of 60's British girls.
Now for something completely different …

And, if you do, which birds do you have?

Guilty, I am for the birds.
Without actually looking I know I have 20mm duck, geese, chickens, turkeys and 28mm crows, ravens and somehistoric lads that I know not their names…probably others but I can't think

Do 15mm WWII Italians counts as chickens?

Not a one

And again with the Italian jokes!

(war surplus rifles – never fired and only dropped once)

Yes, also their ancestors- Dinosaurs.

I sculpted an army of humans dressed as birds.

Let's get back to the part about British 60's girls!

Yes. I have scale appropriate avian animals.

Yes, many birds. My WWI French, WWII Americans have carrier pigeon units. My WWII German Indian Legion battalion has a peacock as a mascot (national bird of India); one of my ACW Union regiments has an eagle as a mascot; several Terror Birds in my prehistoric collection; several ostriches in my zoo and African animals collection; storks in my zoo animals collection. Penguins in my zoo collection and in my "Batman Villain" collection, and giant penguins in my prehistoric collection. Chickens, ducks, and geese as part of my farm animals, falcons for my WWII German falconers, my WWII German embassies have several eagles, and small birds.

I am sure there are more, but that's all I can come up with in a few minutes.

My Romans have a bird on a stick.

I might someplace have a colonel with a bird on his uniform.

I game in Middle-Earth, so of course I have Eagles. You can't end a battle without them.

Leave it to Etotheipi to start a flap, flap, flap…. pun intended.
