Halacha - kosher birds
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

The Gemara lists certain general indications of which birds are kosher and which are not, however we do not rely on these indications and we only eat birds that we have an unbroken tradition to eat. To the best of my knowledge there is no tradition to eat the coot and it would be considered a non-kosher bird that may not be eaten. However, since this is only based on a lack of specific tradition but it is possible that according to the Torah the coot may be kosher, you could do shiluach haken on the safek as we anyways don't say a beracha on this mitzva.
