I'm working on raising my Chocobo digging skill now and since the update I'm very interested in the new Racing silks. I wasn't interested in raising a chocobo before, but now that the silks are available I will raise my first bird.
Because I'm a digger, naturally I want a digging chocobo... but because I want racing silks I'm afraid I won't be able to earn them at a good rate. From what I've been reading you can earn a good chuck of chocobucks every day in Free Runs but only 1-5 per day in Chocobo digging (if you're sucessful).
So my question is, can a Chocobo raised for digging win the free runs for chocobucks? Or do I need to raise a racing chocobo if I'd like more than one silk in the next year >:( Also, are there other ways of earning Chocobucks I don't know about?
