Several years ago, my brother-in law served a tur-duck-en for thanksgiving. I had never heard of this triple fowl before. It was a Turkey stuffed with a Duck stuffed with a Chicken. It was unique, and very tasty.
Last thanksgiving, I was teaching the turkey trot for our fowl ball. I then taught the Disco Duck, followed by the Chicken dance. I was inspired to put all three dances together as the Tur-Duck-En Line dance. I took some time and put together a custom edit of all 3 songs. I then had a great time teaching it as my thanksgiving dance this year.
