    I'm clear out in So Cal, but I am about to start thinning down my Parrot Finch flock. I have around sixty, maybe a third pied, the rest normals.

    OMG! Those are beautiful! You wouldn't ship, would you? I'm supposing that they probably wouldn't handle shipping well [​IMG]

    I could ship, but they have to be shipped like when you ship a puppy, not like chickens. They go counter to counter by airline. ($$$) [​IMG]

    Anyhow, I just pulled all the nest boxes and am bringing them inside to start separating them by sex, so people can build pairs they want for next breeding season. As you can see, there are a lot to choose from. About 30 of them are not showing in the photo.
