    Are you stunned? I am.

    A breeder I know has much experience with importing animals and decided to put his knowledge to good use and bring in the one thing we've all been waiting for!

    His birds are here, and he's allowed me to break the news, though he won't be ready to offer them to the public for a while yet.

    His birds are from the finest stock, and he's getting other colors in very soon, but only got Lavender and Black with this first group of Chocolates.
