    Do any of you try to breed for intelligence? I know there's a limit, but I have one bird who's not a great specimen of her breed, but is as smart as a chicken can be. I intend to breed her to the smartest man bird I can find and try to correct the colour later.

    Love it. Now if only our political leaders would start such a program for themselves.

    Careful. If you breed them too smart it could be scary. [​IMG]

    I was kinda hoping they would get up early and scramble some eggs for me. Oo...and do the dishes.
