    I got an additional Buttercup (ordered 4, got 5)!

    I was a little disappointed at first, but they're turning out to be among the most outgoing and friendly of the group, so now I'm happy! [​IMG]

    Ordered 10/10/5...BR/RIR/JG. Invoice stated 11 BR. Forward in time...as they developed one of the Bar Rocks was lagging the others considerably in development. Smaller in height and not getting that "oblong" shape they acquire. So I named her Pumpkin for her roundness appearance. She's still smaller than all the others and easily identifiable. I'm wondering if she was a "two yolk" baby?
