Some family's don't have enough money to eat well or be able to know about animals or have any time to be a kid or family or entertainment at all. Go back to older times where family's didn't have tv radio computers. Family's worked out in fields and didn't have a lot but where greatful for what they had and the hard work that was involved . There was no movie theater or arcades or casinos or a lot of gangs drug or violence ect I want to teach my son old ways. Church and animals and love. To make to grow. Not take .
The reason those are rare or extinct is that they had special environmental adaptations and could not survive the encroachment of human habitat and ways. One, you will not be able to acquire any of those ducks, or their eggs. Two, the requirements of those are such that you could not replicate them where you live, and if you could, you couldn't contain them in it.
Your goal is admirable, but not practical. Farming is not all about animals. Planting beans and watching bean plants grow, then a few weeks later eating what you've raised, is every bit as rewarding.
