I was talking with a coworker about meat eating, and how its technically safer to eat things further away from human on the food chain. (e.g. eating monkey is nearly as dangerous as eating human with respect to a several disease vectors, like HIV is probably a crossover from monkey hunters).

I proposed that of the meats that americans typically eat, chicken is probably the furthest away.

Him, "So what is a meat eater who only eats chicken called?"

Me, "picky?"

pescotarian or something like that - pesco = chicken I think (this was 10 years ago)

and I'd say some fish are safest, not the ones that carry mercury.

A pescevegetarian eats fish. "Pesce" means "fish."

There's not really a word for a poultry-eating vegetarian, probably because by the time you get to poultry, there's really no disputing that you're an omnivore. Maybe "aviavore."
