    All three of mine started between 19 and 21 weeks of age, so not too long to wait now [​IMG]

    Quote:Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!! Would you believe we are out of town for my sisters wedding, so our dear friend checking in on the girls found it and called to tell me! But I know it was Agnes, because she had been practicing for the last week.

    I don't think so. My friend caring for our girls while we are away said it was a different brown from the others but it was also speckled. I will post some photos on Sunday.
