    yes, she looks old enough, just make sure she does not get picked on by the others you are going to put her with.

    Quote:I am I have their pen built I might put her out close to the big girls until the others get old enough to be with her. I know! She is HUGE she may be a little older thats justwhat the lady told me...... She just keeps trying to be the boss with the other babies but only when Im around. Thanks for the advice! [​IMG]
