turtledoves Are Good Roasted And In pastry

This is an excerpt from Le Menagier de Paris
(France, 1393 - Janet Hinson, trans.)

Turtledoves are good roasted and in pastry, and are in season in September, from August on. Always when roasted they smell marvelous; and if you have plenty of them and wish to feed and keep them, you should clip or pluck their tails, otherwise they will fly and maim themselves and thus die.
