Thank you so much for your response. I'm not sure that I want
to breed them. I'm not even sure if they are male and
female. I'm sending out their blood for DNA sexing tomorrow.
They are great "pets" and I know that if you breed them that
they can become very attached to each other and then not want
to be "pets" as much. But at least now I have the info I need
if I want to. Thanks again!!!!
