Talk to a breeder directly, that way you get better info from someone who has good knowledge.

Get a Muscovy duck. Shit's cash. They don't stupid like other dumb ducks. Mostly Peekings dumb it. So Muscovy.

Also the females do this cute whistling weird noise that is still one of the loveliest noises I done ever heard.

These also live near my house and are the friendliest feral animal I have ever met.
Sometime I have both in my yard eating from my bird feeder.

Larger parrots are an extremely big commitment , much moreso than dogs and cats. They are likely to outlive your commitment to them. They can also be extremely loud and if you like quiet solitude a parrot is probably not for you.

If you do decide to get a parrot, investing in training and taming media such as videos and books (eg: parrot wizard or birdtricks or something) will help a shit ton and well worth it.

Fun fact: raptor and rapist are almost the same word, etymologically speaking. This means neckbellies and neckbeards are basically the same. My waifu can literally eat my penis.

You want to get the basics of bird training down before trying to handle a Quaker. They need intense and constant socialization. You need to constantly be getting into their cage space, changing their perches and toys around, playing with them inside their cage, moving the cage location in the house, and giving them as big a cage as possible to curb aggression. Start early. Start at eight weeks. Hand fed only. Get them used to toweling, restraining, stick step up, left and right hand step up, children, dogs, cats, fat men, women, scary bearded dudes, etc etc. They need, like, two hours of training per day in the beginning scattered throughout.

Well worth the effort though. They will laugh with you, laugh at you, laugh at your games and shows, hang on your every word and action, be concerned when you cry (mine even says "don't cry, it's OK!", though I did not teach her this), eat what you eat, and are generally a lot of fun. Great talkers. They let you know what they want.

Saipan Jungle fowl, one of the most aggressive breeds you can get, even the hens will beat the shit outta anything that gets in
