Static particles won't render in yafray

How come static particles won’t render in yafray?
:x :x

Unfortunately, I don’t think particles are supported by Yafray.

yafray doesnt support any particles unless its duplivert particles

Crap. I am trying to make a puffy fuzzy bird. I did alright with static paritcles, but I am rendering in yafray. Are there any plans for support??
