    Thanks! I thought Gracey was a rooster for a while. I was extremely upset, but I feel so relieved now! I didn't know what we were going to do if we had three roosters! I love them all so much and I don't wanna get rid of any of them!

    So yay! Two girls! So glad :)

    our babies are around 5 weeks so we have a ways to go yet before figuring out what we have. They are so funny to watch. Gave them small pieces of bread this morning and one ran around carrying a piece for about 10 minutes before finally eating it. They remind me of Dr. Seuss creatures [​IMG]
