    I can't imagine why anyone would ever buy off the internet in
    this type of "blind" situation anyway. No matter what the
    product. If not for what it does to the innocent birds
    involved, I'd have to say good enough, serves them right.
    Anyone stupid enough to send money in these situations
    deserves what they get. One would think there has already
    been enough internet scamming proven to convince folks this
    is not the way to buy something, especially a living creature.
