    So today is the week mark for the screaming little monsters [​IMG] We decided to pull up the paper towels and let them play in the sand, since they had already figured out how to rip little holes in the paper anyway [​IMG]

    So....... any guesses on gender yet?

    Miagi, mutt (boy?)
    [​IMG]

    Danielson, mutt (Girl?)
    [​IMG]

    Karate, mutt (boy?)
    [​IMG]

    And last but not least, Seven (egg #7, we figured we'd call it Seven of Ten, Seven for short) EE with really neat colored feathers coming in (Boy?)
    [​IMG]


    And their first dust bath, just a few minutes ago, Miagi and Seven are the ones rolling around in the dirt.

    I'm a trekkie!!! And so is my DH. In fact, we met through a Klingon fan club back in "the day". I know what you're thinking... weird, but true! [​IMG]

    They are so cute! [​IMG] I have 8 babies that are 8 days old today. I need to get some sand in with them. The only issue is that they're with mama, so she's going to try to get in with them and make (more of) a mess!

    Thanks for sharing the video!

    Quote:Nope..... not weird, then again I'm a geek/nerd/thread killer/trekkie kinda person [​IMG]

    Hubby on the other hand had no clue about Seven of Nine [​IMG] I had to explain it to him [​IMG] He needs to be assimilated. He still doesn't really grasp why I'm calling it Seven [​IMG]

    Quote:Ah... yes, you must assimilate him! I'm a trekkie from WAY back. Watch all the series and movies, of course. DH and I actually used to work security at ST and sci-fi cons around CT, NY, NJ, PA, DE, MD, and VA; so we got to meet some guest stars up close and personal. Kinda cool bit of history for us, anyway. Makes for an interesting photo album! [​IMG]

    They are gorgeous!!! And I loved the dust bath video. Mine remind me of little pigs rolling around in mud when they get in sand...heeheehee....[​IMG] The coloring of your two light ones is SO pretty...

    Quote:And the feathers coming in are even more cool, can't wait to see what they are going to look like. Today Miagi started showing a dark mahogany color to his wing feathers, now that's going to be interesting I think.
