    I PLAN TO KEEP A WATCH ON HER AND IF SHE DOES IT AGAIN THEN HER AND
    HER MATE WILL BE PUT IN A SEPARTE CAGE FROM EVERYONE ELSE. I HAD NEVER
    HAD ANYTHING LIKE THIS TO HAPPEN BEFORE SO. I'M HOPING TO GET AN
    OUTDOOR AVAIRY BUILT IN THE SPRING AND SEE HOW THEY WOULD DO THAT WAY.
    ANYWAY, THANKS FOR THE ADVICE...JILL
