    bobs can be nasty. I haven't seen them mean at babyhood but they sure are beating me up right now.

    So sorry you experienced this but sometimes things like this happens.

    That's bobwhites, I don't know why they are like that but they are. It got really bad when breeding season started, my pairs of GG's started fighting. [​IMG]

    Quote:Well, just so you'll know, those "3 month olds" ain't babies. They're adolescents that have the natural born instinct to walk up to its litter mate, and just forever more put the ever-livin' Holy Moly smackdown on him/her..........just because! Get used to it.... You're likely to see it again.... [​IMG]
