    Hi LindaC,
    I didn't mean for anyone to think that I wanted them just for
    breeding. They will have a forever home no matter what. But yes
    I would like to breed them and I welcome any advice you offer. I
    plan on doing everything you suggested first and making them
    feel they are a part of our family because they are. I have
    wanted Quakers for a long time now and we finally own our own
    home and have the room for them to fly and play. Do you have a
    website or have you checked into getting one. It would cost you
    alot more than 1000.00 from what all my husbands clients tell
    us. And if more breeders got websites it would be easier to tell
    the scams from real avaries and breeders and hopefully the
    scammers would leave the ad boards. If you don't have a website
    do you mind me asking why not? I'm a stay at home mom and have
    the time to spend with my birds. My husband offered to do a
    website (he doesn't like the scammers either) Because I have
    been saveing for along time my pets and bills come before
    saving. So I hope you understand where I am coming from now.

    Thank You
