    You may have to wait unti the weather is cooler to have any shipped to you if your lucky enough to find a pair. I think regulations are that it needs to be below 80 degrees on both ends for shipping.

    I have been looking for amhersts myself. I had a trio and lost one hen over the winter. I would like to eventually keep two trios but have had no luck finding any in my area yet and I hate to have birds shipped.

    I have a good friend who has all kinds of pheasants and peafowl - I love going to her house. I know she did have some mature Lady Amherst for sale, let me know if you're still looking and I'll ask her for you. She's in NC.
