    Ok... Let me tease you with my sweet baby gliders...
    They are exotic marsupials that hail from Austrailia... the females carry their offspring in a pouch, much like a Kangeroo. I started out with a young pair about a year and a half ago. Who have produced offspring twice now.
    Their first daughter.. I raised for my neice, last summer. Then they had a set of twin boys this winter.




    These are pics of my last batch of babies. I kept one male and sold the other. Then I bought him a mate, from a couple who were expecting their first child and didn't have the time to care for their 2 year old, female glider anymore. So, I now have 2 pair. [​IMG]


    They love to eat fruit. Watermelon being their favorite treat.


    They also love playtime in the tent.... jumping, running, climbing, hanging upside down, gliding to the top of my head from the tent top, grooming my hair, chasing each other & being an all around mess.

    Ok first off [​IMG] Bennie. Sorry you lost a roo, but its why mine are under lock and key [​IMG] literally.

    Second, Mary and Bennie, I guess my kids and I will never go to your house as I would have to leave the kids at your place when I leave because of all your critters! [​IMG] They don't even like leaving Beth's!

    Mary what are the first two chicks, the black and white ones in the first picture?

    Good Morning Everyone!! For those of you who have to go anywhere (especially in/around Johnston County)...please be careful as it is very foggy out by me!! (I guess if you aren't close by you might have escaped the blanket of fog!!).

    Matt - words cannot adequately express my sincerest sympathies at your loss. We all know she was well loved and cared for while she was there with you. [​IMG] Since I am not a dog person, please don't find me too cruel when I say I hope you stumble upon the body of that nasty mutt after it suffered a long horrible death!! (My apologies to those of you who like dogs...I liked them until I was 4 and my grandmother's dog tried to eat my face!!)

    Mary - It's official. I am banned from ever stepping foot NEAR your place!! You have just about the cutest things!! Here I thought visiting BHep was I know the truth!! It's a conspiracy that you two have...trying to enable us into further cuteness!! CUTENESS OVERLOAD!!

    Today is my finishing up day...I cut out the baby quilt yesterday and I intend to finish it today (assuming DD lets me actually sew on my machine!!) LOL Then I think I will work on making a few play dresses for DD's baby doll (I absolutely LOATHE sewing doll clothes!!) At least she is good about it. At 18mo, she will sit there and watch me measure, draw, cut out and sew pieces together. The whole time I am working she usually says, "baby!" because she knows it's for her baby doll. Just know if any of the fabric is owl...I'm in trouble!! LOL for the rest of the day I will hear NOTHING but "owl"...girl loves owls...and deer....and foxes....and chickens....and cows...okay, pretty much any animal!! LOL Have a GREAT day everyone!!

    Individual photos of my chicks. I do not think they are all the same breed.

    In the last several batches of photos, there have been bands of assorted materials on the chicks. I've been looking at bands recently and am trying to decide what to use. I've used zipties in the past, but have had some issues with them tightening up, so want to use something else. Can you tell me what you use and what you do or don't like about it? I'm assuming everything has pros and cons; we just have to sort out which cons we can live with! Thanks for any info.

    Also....My sorrow for those who have lost birds recently. I had a dog get into my chicken area a couple years ago and kill half my flock, so I know the rage and the helplessness of dealing with such a tragedy. Just reading it brought back that gut-wrench. I love my dogs, but a livestock killing dog would get shot in a New York minute around here.
