(Previously Gallinaceous) Galliformes are omnivorous birds with large bodies, thick beaks, robust limbs, short and obtuse wings. Almost all sedentary, Galliformes are terrestrial and the majority of species have a very distinct form of sexual dimorphism. There are six families in the order: Megapodiidae (mallee fowl), Cracidae (chachalacas, curasows, etc.), Tetraonidae (grouse, ptarmigans and prairie chickens), Phasianidae (pheasants, new world quail, quail, partridges, peacock, chicken), Numididae (guineafowl) and Meleagrididae (turkeys).
