Jeff, I'm so sorry to read this.... As the breeder of Apache I was more than over joyed to see how well he did for you. You both were great examples of what dedication, and consistency can do. It really does hurt when these kinds of things test your metal. I know, been there done that, with my own birds and the ones others have gotten from me. That is always the downside of breeding, as I have known each one, at least in part, and they all have a special place in my heart.

Good luck in your next bird and I hope it turns out as good as Apache.
