    For the first time photographed and online:

    Lady Jane:

    and her boyfriend Rocky B.:

    WOOHOO! After an exhaustive search, I finally was able to track down a breeder for the blue splash d'Anvers!!! This was the last pair she had, since she will no longer be breeding/showing them. She did have an unbelievable assortment of all the other types of d'Anvers, though (74 birds in all). I paid more than I care to admit, but am SO VERY glad to have them here!! The funniest part is that I was so desperate I was firing off e-mails to every corner of this country (and last night even considered looking overseas, but figured shipping costs would be astronomical), and when I finally tracked them down they were 1/2 an hr away from me! They are resting comfortable right next to me, so I can keep an eye on them tonight. Tomorrow I come up with accomodations for the next few weeks.

    Moral of the story: If you want a specific kind, keep looking. I tracked her down through someone else that breeds d'Anvers.. amazing really.
    And if you breed and sell, make sure your name is on-line somewhere. Otherwise, how can people find you?!

    LOL! That was for photographic affect...

    Actually... you caught me. I'm lacksidaisical to say the least. Still waiting for the maid to show up (you know, the one I hired 6 years ago, when I first had kids?!!). I even told my dh he could have a girlfriend as long as she does laundry and dishes..

    Hi Meghan, regarding your post about not caring if DH had a girlfriend as long as she did the laundry and the dishes...too funny and I'm so with you on that! Told my DH something along the same lines and he immediately came back with, "yea, and you can have a boyfriend as long as he pays half the bills!" [​IMG]

  10. Those are such darling birds!
    And since blue and splash are my favorite colors, I'd say "Ya done good!".
