    Can't wait! I love Iris, she's so beautiful, she and her sister, Hazel. Hope she'll be a great mom. If you ever part with them, I'll take em both back. [​IMG] Bet you won't, though.

    Have you thought about sneaking a piece of shelf liner under them when you have her off the nest, so they'll have better footing on that plastic bottom?

    Excellent idea, Lee, if you have any.
