Very new! Hubby decided it might be fun-turns out I’m the one actually loving it!

Turkens and black chicks I’m not quite sure of yet. That’s why I’m here!

Eggs, hopefully! It’s sort of an adventure-and I’m discovering all sorts of things I never knew when into raising them.

Leopard gecko. We had two;but one passed away last year.
Lol, yes, we do have a bakers dozen!
I had a Madagascar Day Gecko, Gertrude. She was formerly known as Gus when I ‘adopted’ her. Once I discovered eggs in her terrarium a name change was in order. Also had a few Komoros Day Geckos, they mated and against all odds hatched babies. I also had a leopard gecko for a number of years
