Until recently I'd never heard of soaking chicken (or pheasant) in milk - liver, yes! but not poultry. I have always understood the purpose of soaking liver in milk is to reduce the strength of the flavour, which makes sense as some livers can be very 'flavourful'. Recently I was asked about soaking pheasant in milk, so I decided to investigate. It appears to serve exactly the same purpose for pheasant!

For those who do not desire the very strong, gamey flavour that defines hung pheasant, soaking the bird in milk overnight will reduce the 'gamey-ness', producing a much milder, more palatable flavour. Of course, you could just eat the pheasant while fresh and avoid the issue...

Unless the milk is a perfectly comfortable chicken bath temperature. I mean, a milk bath, how extravagant.

It gives the chicken stronger bones and teeth.

If you give your chicken a bath in chocolate milk do you get brown eggs?

Do Rhode Island Reds get bathed in strawberry milk?

Oh the questions just never stop.
