turducken?!? in Hannah Glasse?!?

To make a Yorkshire Christmas Pye

...

Open the Fowls all down the Back, and bone them, first the Pigeon, then the Partridge, cover them; then the Fowl, then the Goose, and then the Turkey, which must be large: season them all well first, and lay them in the Crust so as it will look only like a whole Turkey

...

Quoted p 76-7 in Clarkson; I haven't checked it yet in the original. A hare, a woodcock and "more Game, what Sort of wild Fowl you can get" went in surrounding the turkey.

Wacky. I know it isn't really turducken for a host of reasons.
