Chicken anniversary

Elf and I will celebrate our sixth anniversary on Saturday. Neither of us could remember what the traditional gift is. I thought perhaps it was chicken. It appears to be iron, although one American site said "iron, candy". Some of the "modern" prescribed gifts on this site are staggering.

4th Appliances
7th Desk sets
11th Fashion jewelry
16th Silver holloware (?)
24th Musical instruments
27th Sculpture
28th Orchids
32nd Conveyances (e.g., automobiles)
41st Land
44th Groceries
46th Original poetry tribute
48th Optical goods (e.g., telescope, microscope)
49th Luxuries, any kind
100th 10-carat Diamond
