Re: Quaker proven pair wanted
Posted by Tiffany VanKirk on 6/16/06
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.
