I am hoping to find someone out there to advise me on what kind of bird would be right for me and my family. There are so many kinds of birds out there that even if I read all of the information all day long I will not know what to purchase. So I need recomendations on what would be right for us. Here is what I am looking for. I have two girls under the age of 5 who would find a pet bird really cool! I am wanting them to experience and interact with the bird. I love the idea of a chicken tractor and fertilizer for my garden. I only have an acre and a half. I have an ornery dog who would love chicken dinners. I would also like eggs if possible. I live in rural community. We're pretty sure we don't want noisy chicken roosters but if we have to we can. I am leaning towards chickens but am really open to ducks, turkeys, or other fowl if they would be a better fit for my family. Thanks for your time and I would love your words of wisdom.
