This is how I incubate my ducks. Everybody wants them when they see the cute babies, I want to make sure it is not an impulse buy and people realize the care that is needed for these animals.
Did you live here in "PA" when you had your sulcata?
Yep have only ever lived in PA! Thinking about getting my mom one again, it was actually really sad how we lost him! My mom would put him out in his play area everyday and would bring him in every night. Well one day the pen was moved but not properly secured at the bottom and my mom didnt realize this and put him out for his daily romp. Well she went to check on him and give him more food nd saw he lifed the one side of the pen n was missing!! Soo upset we spent hours in the woods surrounding our house and no such luck!, still feel so bad about this cause we all really loved Timmy!!
