Why Can't Tyrell Afford a Real Owl?

The February 1981 screenplay was written as: Deckard: "It's artificial?" Rachael: "Of course not." Tyrell would probably keep a showpiece animoid replicant to impress visitors. Note also that in DADoES, the "Tyrell corporation" lied to Deckard (that is, told him it was real) in an attempted bribe.
