    Not even hatched and Im already a proud pop. I ordered 10 females and the box is sure to include a bunch of males. I'll take care of all of them at first, but I think I found homes for the boys.

    Im kinda on edge cuz its getting COLD and maintaining the temp in the plastic storage bins is proving to be a task. The birds arrive Thursday or Friday, so I have a couple nights to get it down. Fingers crossed![​IMG]
