    Yes I still have her because I wont ship her . She has to be picked up. She cant be left outside in the cold. In the winter she stays in the greenhouse ( which is heated ).... and she is housed with little Bob White Quails.... Impeyans, Temminicks, Red Golden , Lady Amherst pheasants ( all Males) and shes with Waterfowl including Eiders, Hooded Mergansers, small ringed teal and she hangs out and plays with All of them. She was hatched at Ct Waterfowl. and they did an exceptional job rearing the hatchlings because she was totaly imprinted and gentle when I got her.
