    Hi Terri,
    I am in St Louis MO. The only strawberries I know of around
    here are novice owners who don't realize what they have except
    pretty little birds that they won't give up. I thought I had
    two green strawberry hens and two male reds, but when I put
    them all in my new aviary 8'wx7'dx8'tall the two sets split
    appart and are now acting like prs. I hope that they will
    mate. I know that greens and reds can't breed successfully,
    at least thats what I read, but they sure are acting like they
    want to nest since Monday. I can only hope. I will keep you
    posted. Please feel free to email me if you would like. It's
    always nice to keep in touch with other breeders of a feather
    so to speak.
