Raising rare birds and fowl has proven fun and interesting. Its always a joy to have something a little bit different than most people see on farms anymore. We started primarily with small birds (finches, etc.,) but we wanted something a bit more exotic and fun so our interests turned towards the larger species, Amazons, Cockatoos and Macaws. Sometimes life throws you a curve ball and we are required to go through changes (and environments). Now we've settled on peacocks and pheasants, some rare chickens, plus the usual cats, dogs, puppies, kittens, iguanas, parrots and even geckos that find their way into our home.
