    I've seen quite a lot of users on BYC who seem to prefer other birds over chickens - I'm curious to see just how many there are!
    I myself have a soft spot for canaries. I think I might be the only one, to vote for this. :lol:

    ETA: Birds kept on the farm, or in the house. I couldn't think of a word to group it all together. :)

    Swans, parrots (except perhaps budgies, cockatiels and one or two other species), emus and ostriches are not domesticated. They may be bred in captivity, but they're still wild species.

    Oooh, gosh, I like them all and can't choose one over the rest, so I voted other. [​IMG] I like parrots and canaries. Like you, my BIL loved canaries but also birds in general. There's wild naturalized flocks of lovebirds here in AZ. I wish some of them would come over to my place. [​IMG]

    AquaEyes: Yes, I see what you're saying. I could not for the life of me think of a word to group all of it together, though what I mean is birds that one keeps on their farm, or in the house. :lol: Otherwise everyone would vote other, as there are so many species of bird it's mind-boggling.

    dewey: Wow, that's so sweet! The only wild birds we have round here are pigeons and the odd parrot sometimes, if we're lucky. Crows, magpies... yeah, pretty standard. :lau
