I am with Right Turn, I thought it meant an inmate in prison, a denizen of the excercise yard.

It's actually a rock group from the 60's and 70's.

^^^ I've heard the term "yard bird" long before the '60s and '70s. First toime I robably heard the term was in those old prison movies from the 1930's!

I know, I was just trying to milk it, the rock group was actually called the byrds.

It seems like the bird is very selective in choosing the ingredients of the sandwich... Is she looking for tomatoes or pickles?

Ahh Yes... The definition of "Yard Bird" used here is a free ranging chicken. Free range means it isn't kept in a pen or coop. That means you don't know what it's been eating. He does prefer cheese, he's selectively targeting it first but does eat the bun and meat too.
His name is Elliott and he's 16 years old. We hand fed him and he is completely bonded with us.

You were closer than you think. They were called the Yardbirds in the 60's. Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck were all Yardbirds

I'm a big clapton fan, I didn't know he was in a group called the yardbirds, but there is also a group called the byrds of the 60's and 70's, their big hit was turn,turn,turn.

I suspected that was a Southern usage, as I've never heard the phrase "yard bird" used to mean "chicken."

Just means you guys need to get out more. Chicken has been called yard bird in my family for generations. Saw a TV show make the reference this weekend. Its not new, just very colloquial.
