they are a type of poultry i guess, but there part of the Galliformes family which is the order of birds that includes pheasants, peafowl, francolin, partridge, quail, grouse, turkey, guineafowl and cracids - more commonly referred to as game birds.
hope that helps. if you don't get an incubator to incubate the eggs, i would recommend silkies for you.
