A bit of advice - I would refrain from posting personal email address on an open forum as that may welcome a lot of spam or other undesired emails.
Anyway as for Chocobos, I cannot help you with that. I originally raised my slow yellow chicken as an anywhere instant taxi. Now you get my interested trying again to raise a more interesting bird :-).

Art for the sake of art itself is an idle sentence.
Art for the sake of truth, for the sake of what is
beautiful and good — that is the creed I seek.
- George Sand
A designer knows he has achieved perfection,
not when there is nothing left to add,
but when there is nothing left to take away.
- Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
