    Good Luck. Best You Can Hope For Is To Keep Watching Eggbid For Birds Or Eggs And Keep Your Check Book Well Stocked!

    Oh And 1 More Thing--- These Arent Beginner Birds--- From The Info I Have Gotten They Are Quite The Challenge.

    Eggs will be hard to find, most breeders raise them and then sell pairs.

    Quote:ABSOLUTELY!!! AS MOST STATES AT A MINIMUM REQUIRE PROPER PERMITS AND INSPECTIONS BEFORE ALLOWING RELEASE OF BIRDS, AND SOME WONT ALLOW IT AT ALL. VERY GOOD POINT HERE!
