    In the play, Rosaline was Romeo's first love. I think that sounds lovely.

    We have a grey tabby cat named Romeo and last year we adopted a female look-alike. I wanted to name her Juliet but my husband vetoed that idea as being just too cutesy for words. He instead named her Prozac. [​IMG] I definitely like Juliet and Rosaline for your two little ladies - it's a lot better than naming one after an antidepressant drug.

    did a game fair last weekend we moved over $1700.00 in birds.
    this is the only pair i came home with.
    we never have been bantam types here.
    they were just so cute i could not pass
    mini me chickens are cool. they are fast and the free range flock of large breeds are mean
    to them, good thing they are fast. both are this years hatch still young for sure
    but do the color and body form look ok

    Here is my sweet Bonnie (22 weeks), she is so tiny and small, but she shows the most love! She even "growls" and sounds like the baby Raptors from Jurassic Park!! Haha so funny

    Ya'all are lucky. Down here, in the Deep South, Banties are so common that I can't sell show quality OEGB's or Sebrights for more than $10-20 a breeding pair! That's why I wind up with so many, I guess. I figure that I'll keep 'em before I give them to someone who's simply gonna toss them out in the yard!

    I am in Indiana and the ones at the fair were going for 15-30 each and that was not for show quality I am thinking. Are you NPIP, will you ship eggs?
