Shock collars if they don't comply!
I would read up on imprinting Eric. If you got some birds and eggs, and incubated them yourself, I would imagine if your daughter was there as the adoptive mother, they would certainly let her do about anything? I have absolutely no idea on aviaries. I would have ducks already, if it wasn't a covenant rule where I live, that we cannot have any sort of birds or poultry. I have 1.5 acres, and there would most certainly be a netted pond in my yard if I could have one.
You know what I would raise? Mutts! Complete hybridization of everything wood duck. I would not become attached to them. I would make so many frankeducks and target the hearts of taxidermists….Or not? I think it would be difficult for me to ever put one of them down, and if I had live birds to look at, I might grow old of taxidermy as well? A position I unfortunately will never be in.
