Our local animal shelter has many animals available including ducks and chickens and occasionally goats even. I adopted my baby-oops, I mean my dog there and couldn't be more pleased. I assume though with worries about chicken diseases that I should be more careful when adding to my feathered family. I could probably arrange something to quarantine them (for how long?). Would you consider adopting a bird from the shelter? I don't know what they do if the birds have been there too long. Oh, and if it matters it's $10 a bird.
