    Melanie - Per dthe response from Toby's Mom, it is illegal to
    import these birds from anywhere to the USA. In addition, I doubt
    that you would be able to gind a reliable source in Africa -- I
    don't believe the DYH is native to Africa. Click on the link below
    for one reference to substantiate this.
