I've just done that part, after the update, to make a new chocobo, lol. The old one didn't care at all about me (guess it was mutual ^^, was yellow, and was always losing at chocobo's race... Anyway, Rufus gave me a Chocobo Egg without having to wait an hour. And, do you actually HAVE TO feed him to enhance his stats? I really hope this update made a good boost in Chocobo raising, this thing is boring as hell. Edit: When I retired my chocobo (you have a little sad CS. /cry), I got two items: a VCS Registration Card and a Yellow VCS Plaque.
