    Hi again - sorry to keep posting but these lil babes have took over my life - anyways I decided they needed some better bigger accommodation so here's what I prepared for them:

    It's really just a dog cage with plastic stuck to the sides (but they don't know that)

    They love to squash the piles of straw and shavings:

    It doesn't take long to find the perch:

    And Pumpkin finds the food first:

    Elvis being king of the castle (as usual):

    I think it's a thumbs up!

    I'm just so proud of my babes - I love em so much

    Ohh and I'm so excited cos I just ordered them the Omlet Eglu Cube for when they're big enough to go outside.

    I apologise in advance for keeping uploading pics - I just can't help wanting to show off!!!

    I got the fertilized eggs from 2 different sellers on ebay - ordered 6 whites and 6 coloured - 8 hatched (5 coloured and 3 whites) but one white one died at a week old - so I now got 7 and they all seem to be doing well. - so yes I'm proud to say I hatched them myself and we are really bonding [​IMG].
