    I believe Nyboy said his Vet and a client (I think) each wanted one. That leaves one for him to ship to Wisconsin (or wherever).

    That's great, but it's also a 25 to 50 year commitment to care for a feathered friend that will need a lot of attention.

    And then there's next years hatchlings. . .

    Have you been able to handle them at all yet?? Will they be difficult for their new owners to tame?

    Mother willn't let me touch them. Being babies should tame easy.
