    I have asked around and an animal columnist I know offered to import birds for me. He's apparently experienced at animal importation (I had no idea!).

    So now the question is what breeds? I'll need to line up the birds through other henthusiasts over there, as he'll only be able to bring them back, but still!!

    What breeds would you like to see brought back from England?

    I have totally turned my back on the Spitz because I got tired of them all dying of cancer- totally forgot about them! It would be good to have a line here w/o that! Holy smokes!

    Keep 'em coming!

    Quote:Sounds great Renee !! I'd like to see Crele Orps too, as I know somebody who is supposed to have GL orps in the States in October.

    How does this work? Just curious, as one of my best friends' brother lives in England and she goes over at least once a year. Might check into this myself. Not sure how it would work with the quarantine process...I'm assuming they would still have to be quarantined for the 30 days (if they are live birds)...or are you talking about eggs?
