I don't eat them. I keep some as pets and some I sell as food.
My step father wants 15, I don't mind if others eat them as long as they are taken before I get to know their personalities.
I let my dh pick which ones go to people for food. I hate looking at those cute little faces all trilling at me(the way only scovies can) and reaching my hand in and saying "your getting eaten, you can stay and live out your life here as a pet"
