    Sorry for your loss. :hugsHe sounds like he was a character. I halfway expected this to be some kind of joke thread.

    A Runner drake is so light weight I think a Red tail could easily fly off with one.

    I am sorry for your loss. I remember reading about these guys when they were so tiny. My thoughts are with you.

    Hi and so very sorry, for your loss. My heart goes out to you. Keep your eyes peeled, in case whoever done it, could well be back. Can you lock them up somewhere safe, for a while. I know they will not be happy, but only until you make sure it is safe for them. :love

    He was a sweet boy, so mild mannered and I just loved his voice.

    I’m already thinking about ordering another through Metzers, which means I’m getting another girl too since they will only skip two at the least. But, I live in Texas so... I’ll have to do it soon due to heat.

    Oh yeah. The three chocolate ladies are inside their house. I guess I’ll only let them out when I am in the garden nearby.

    No time like the present I suppose. Nothing helps heal the heart like fuzzy new babies to snuggle. Count Blackula Jr. :love
    Or if he's brown like your girls, Count Chocula ;)

    Glad they are safe, and loved that you gave your girls, extra peas, and love, even
    though you was going through it as well. We always find that inner strength when we
    need it. But whoever took Count Blackula, remember it can never take your memories.
    He was handsome, and yeh, go out and buy 2 more. It will ease the pain, for you.
    Take your mind off it all. Let us all know. :frow

    I do have one egg laid this morning. My dog had the other one. Normally I get three but one lady is not laying currently,molting?
    Should I keep the egg just in case it ends up being fertile? Also is it possible that an egg will be laid tomorrow that is also fertile?
