    I still raise them. They are extremely rare. I have had them for over 5 years now and still only know of 3 other people who have them. Their temperaments vary from bird to bird and bloodline to bloodline. So far I have seen red, gold, silver, white, wheaten, and variations of those colors.

    Three of my pure china lines come (indirectly) from Toni Marie Astin. I'm really only working with two lines at the moment though.
