Re: Cherane Pefley, Breeder, Extrodinaire
Dear Hyacinth Lover,
You must love the breed to spend as did I, Eight Thousand Dollars plus air charter, plus (in my case) to fly in an avian specialist to examine the prospective new family member.
I am, as you realize by now, the man to whom Cherane refers to, as the purchaser of the Hyacinth, having accepted the
rules, affixed to the transaction, by Cherane Pefley,
seeming, at first, to be, merely arbitrary and capricious.
Please accept my letter in the spirit intended, being to assist you in understanding a VERY UNUSUAL breeder, k/a Cherane Pefley, the subject, as much as her babies, of this letter.
I had visited four other breeders, before buying Cherane's
baby, and it is not a grammatical error, when referring to
Cherane's Hyacinths as being "Her Babies," for it is her
love and care, thru the months of nights that appropriately render that title to be correct.
All other breeders claim the same, but I can attest, to the
fact that "Cherane's babies" are products of hundreds of loving, caring hours of tender attention,as I have been writing a book, to be published later this year, and often work thru the night, with the AOL screen kept open, I'd see Cherane coming on all night long. We'd chat for a few minutes, and then she'd be off to tend to her chicks. I virtually observed, gram by gram,
as reported the subject Hyacinth's growth from, Cherane's assisted hatching.
Back to the Hyacinth, I had purchased from Cherane, named "Indigo Blue." I wondered about all of the rules you question,
and can now report, with the healthiest, biggest (for his age), strongest and most loving Hyacinth I'd ever seen, known
and loved, that the end result of all of those sensible rules
that this lady is the breeder of breeders, as her babies are
the cream of the crop!
I spoke, above, of recently viewed and inspected Hyacinths and the word "loved," in the plural, and this was not an exaggeration or mistake. I had purchased, before Indi, a
female (My first choice, you lucky dog) Hyacinth for $7800.00 from a Miami breeder, which I sold
within six weeks, for $4800.00 to an Avian Shop &
Zoo, as I had come to realize that its growth was
stunted, and its biting tendencies were not of the
normal chicks psyche.
This, I later learned, possibly was likely not attributable
to the breeder, but possibly the broker, pet shop, having
raised the chick from early days, to my purchase, at the age
of nine months, such being of little consolation.
I tell you of these stories, simply to edify the process of due diligence exercised by the undersigned, only to have, at first failed, and paid the price of time and a multitude of trips around the State to learn that Cherane's Hyacinth babies are worth, in contrast to what I had seen and/or purchased, Ten Thousand ($10,000.00) Dollars. (I had paid Eight Thousand
($8,000.00) Dollars, and since the said purchase, I have turned down two offers of Ten Thousand ($10,000.00), each
to sell "Indigo Blue."
This is a long letter written to accord you the faith and confidence in Cherane's babies, for which I hereto attest,
as being the champions of all Hyacinths.
I give you credit in two out of two areas of avian determination, One for selecting Cherane, and the
other for having purchased the best bird cage in the
world, designed and manufactured by a genius in his
field, Ray Daily, as marketed by his wife Carmen,
whose expertise on the subject is second only to that
of her husband.
All of the other cage-crap (sorry, but that's what they are)
in today's market represent greater risk to its inhabitants
than reward. Ergo risk to reward ratio, when purchasing
the other products is of a negative value. I shall not belabor
the issue and this letter with details, but I do have such,
should you ever desire to review.
Please do not hesitate to call, write, E-mail or fax me for
further details, relative hereunto,
Richard PS: Time does not accord me the opportunity to
proofread this epistle, so please forgive the
likely error content of its hateful composure.

Dear Ms. Champion,
In answer to your question regarding my experience
with macaws, please be advised that I have related
to macaws, (as humans does not really possess,
except in the human mind, such creatures of wisdom
and beauty), for over Thirty years.
It is wise to speak to those whom have purchased
macaws of the same lineage, for therein lies a major percentage of all creatures character and personality
My regard toward Cherane's stock and offspring's, therefrom, is on record in the form of a letter, at
Cherane's. However, I assume that you have read this.
Therefore, and further, thereto, please note that my
belief in Cherane's babies is edified by my intention
to purchase another Hy-Guy, to be a sibling pal to
my 2 year old Hyacinth of Cher's flock. This invokes
Eight Thousand miles of transportation,
and at a purchase price greater than that paid
here in the Hawaiian Islands. I would do this
simply because Cherane has the finest breeding
stock, and of equal importance is her breeding
An edification of Cherane's macaw and other
"exotics" breeding procedures, from my
1. Cherane raises her kids with pure, unadulterated
and absolute LOVE, and it shows in EVERY
character trait of her feather heads. They're as
loving and sassy as is Cherane.
2. My boy, "Indigo" is now speaking frequently,
however, notwithstanding our relationship, since
he was Nine months of age, he speaks in Cherane's
voice. The vocal strain of his choice is simply a
reflection of his remembrance of Cherane's love.
3. In answer to your question regarding intelligence,
I believe that "Indigo Blue" clearly displays a capacity
4. Cher was a competitive body builder for
years, and thus, is a health food fanatic, which
is the quintessential "nature" of the diet formulated
by which she raises her kids. Cherane has been a
nutrition advisor to human athletes and pet bird
5. Her stock exudes great health, loving affection and intelligence for all of the above. reasons. The Department
of Agriculture for the State of Hawaii must examine and approve all animals entering the State, followed by a
period of statutory quarantine. Indigo was only
subjected to a One Month "In Home" quarantine
6. The examiners, and head of the Department expressed
great admiration for Indi's features, attitude, etc., this
after Twenty Hours of flying in a small under the seat confining container, as a humane summer requirement of all airlines. (I petted him most of the way
and walked off of the plane seeming to be a hunchback.)
Cherane is the "BBB" (BEST BIRD BREEDER) in the USA.
I know, as before adopting one of her Hy's, I had visited
a dozen others, as I did her, with a vet tech, who kept
saying "NO!" till we chartered a plane to visit her and
"Indi" in Vero Beach. There were no questions about
our mutually jubilant "YES." The pilot flew the three
of us back to Naples, Florida.
I have four daughters (human) and one blue son,
who believes he's human, too.
Call me if there is more you would like to know, such
as the rigors of Cherane's follow up in assistance
freely accorded, for as long as required, after the
adoption. She still regularly speaks to Indigo on the
phone, and he DOES KNOW to whom he speaks.
I wish you the best, with the best reared by the best.
