    I raised 1 boy & 3 girl Purples from eggs to 1 1/2 years old. I went out to feed this morning & my male was dead under the roost, like he had a heart attack or something. [​IMG] DW & I were really bummed out! [​IMG] Then...... my cousin called me trying to buy a rare gun of mine. He just happened to have a 4 year old Purple male in with his Blues. Hmmmm..... sounds like a trade is in order! [​IMG] Well, now I have my Pea pen up to par again! [​IMG] What timing on his part! Wait,.... ya think he snuck over in the..... Nah, just coincidence.

    Thanks, This boy isn't near as friendly, but, in time,... maybe. Prince will be missed! The girls aren't impressed with that gorgeous tail of the newby yet. I lucked out with my cousin having a Purple male. He's got about 40, but one is a white male, one Purple male, & the rest India Blues. We're both thrilled with the trade!

    I bet that 8 year old has a nice train! I miss him, because I spent so much time with him, but this boy with a 5 foot tail can take my mind off of him when I go out to watch.
