considering some of my dirty 4 dozen and your sociopathic turkey have you thought about keeping them "in" for the safety of the public and wildlife

The turkey is no more. Poor Clyde, he was a very misunderstood darling. He never attacked me, it was just everyone else that was a problem.

So far our chickens have had a go at the crows, partridge, guinea fowl (there seems to be a truce at present) and the pheasants.

quite right you can't just get one , ostriches are are flock critters, an ostrich would be cruel

umm , im not sure about the other two but even if they are a bit like hamsters they will wan't a "friend" now and again to help provide a 12 covers omelette and a jam pot or a roast for a village.

I believe in always getting a minimum of 3....but the discussion always starts with 'shall we get a.....'

Mr Shan did once arrive home to a flock of sheep, so he's somewhat wary these days.

Let's just say he's taking far too much notice of what I'm interested in, lest he arrives home to half a dozen unexpected arrivals...

heck

heck with a better headline

moa do not strike me as nice pets

why not go for unusual but charming, lots of critters are awesome to look at but delightful to mix with.
polite and very domesticated is usually best.

the giant chooks from the balkans are rather fun but you will need a roller shutter rather than a pophole.

I quite like the idea of a few Moa in a purposefully designed dry moat.
