    Just wondered what everyone elses thoughts are on someone selling tocans and tocan eggs! in the birds classified section. They dont make good pets and it dont sound a good practice giving candle tested eggs away. I know with African Greys you cant usually buy them from a good breeder till they are a certain age i know people who have had to wait for theres ages. Is it just me over-reacting? Toco Toucan chicks photos- as they grow at Aves International

    I dont know much about birds to be honest but they are a very exotic bird and I cant say ive EVER seen them advertised before!
    I wonder if theres some sort of rule or regulation for the sale of these types of birds and their eggs?

    I've personally never seen an advert for them before, I just thought they are wild birds from an exotic country. If anyone spots any dodgy adverts on here just let us know so we can delete them!

    Just did a search for them in google, and noticed they are advertised on quite a few UK classified websites.
