Re: Strawberry finch hen
Posted by Cathy on 10/13/08
I will try to locate an old email I received a few months ago from someone claiming
to have some for sale. (He was responding to an old message board post of mine but

I don't know anything about this individual but will try to find and post it to you
within a day. I think he is in Canada. Hopefully something good may come of it.
