    They are leucistic (I think). Not albino, but no dark pigment. They have been around the hobby for a few years.

    The last time I spoke to DQ, he said it would be about $12 each. He went on to say if we get more peeps involved it could get lower. ;)

    This is true. Its 60.00 a box w/4-5 bags per box the more people to order the cheaper the shipping cost. I have gotten 5 people currently which puts shipping at 12.00 each. Thanks Shawn and Turfboss.

    I understand 60 for 5 bags but apistos go in one bag so I wanted to know how many peole were in so we could ship 60 divided by 5 bags is $ 12 a person if we had people to fill 5 bags but if it's only 2 bags it's still $60 so each person pays $30.
    See my logic lol if only it wasn't all way in BWI :/
    I would probably be down for some red cockatoos :/

    hey guys - I am only about 10 minutes from BWI if anyone needs me to pick up anything at any time let me know - I can certainly get them in out of the cold and depending on the day could even deliver them someplace for you.

    That's what I'm talking about! We need more peeps to get shipping down to $5 and then spend more money on fish instead of shipping! :D
