    This morning we got our first crow! So exciting but I also have some reservations and a question. Thus far he has been good with us and I expect the behavior to change some. My concern is not for me but for my kids. Should I get rid of him or just see how it goes? I only have experience with the roosters at the zoo (docile) and one that I cared for at the farm I took care of and he was MEAN!!!! I could never leave the house without a weapon in hand. Any thoughts? I never raised these as pets, it's always been more of a business relationship for a reason. I love looking at them but just had too many that I started (12) to really turn them into lap pets.

    See how it goes. Keep a close eye on him and your children. If he shows aggression get rid of him then. It's not worth taking a chance of injury to your kids. Hopefully he will remain mellow.
