    those pics of them when they were babies are sooo cute!!
    and your set-up you have in your basement is kind of like what i've had in mind for in basement! [​IMG]
    but yeah. now you've got me all excited for my silkie eggs and for (probably now thanks to you) pekin eggs [​IMG] hahah although i might end up with more than 1 of each... although i would love to have only one of each haha. but where i get my eggs shipped its hard to be sure how many will hatch. so i have to order more to increase hatch rate.. but yeah. i have a dozen white silkie eggs that i should be at the post office tomorrow(ill probably be lucky if even one hatches, where they were shipped all the way from alaska haha but i couldnt resist! her white silkies were so gorgeous!) . anddd 6 call eggs being shipped out monday. and now probably a few pekin eggs being shipped out monday also [​IMG] hahah

    I had a Khaki Campbell for a verrrry long time and he would walk on a leash and walk up the stairs into our house and sit in your lap.

    Quote:Don't do ths unless you're ready to have children!!!! I promise. lol. My ducks are expensive, require extra chores, daily baths, and a lot of attention. I tell anyone considering keeping them indoors, do not do so unless you are ready to have 2 year old humans running around your house throwing tantrums!
