You have to check each states importation regs... most people ship illegally but there isnt much surveillance on the issue yet, but if you ship something that shows up with a disease your sure to have a bit of an issue.

I am happy they are breeding and we will be able to make more babies to replenish our stock after we eat some. We have them outside right now in a blow up pool. We will bring them in for the winter. We are building some tanks in the basement now. We have one made and making room to make the second one. We want to have the tilapia and koi separate in the house. It is really cool watching little eyeballs floating around grow into big fish.
what size pond do you have? I told hubs when the kids are older I want to use my pool for that! How big until you can eat them? and growth period
he does look huge! Do you have the nigerian dwarfs or what breed? I seriously think I want two girls but I want them disbudded I dont see horns on yours, do you do that now? I thought you told me you didnt but you grow so fast I cant keep track of you!

Fauna looks like me at times! not sure which way to go and what child to cluck at! Some look unsure of using the ramp, how old are they? Did you have food and water in the house for them at first? I have not had luck with broody hens, except serama and they dont really have a ramp.
