    Thanks everyone, I only have 2 so i would probably only take one. And I will definatly
    get their wings clipped, I would anly be bringing them in the classroom for about 5
    -10 mins. And if i choose to bring them in, i will make SURE that they are all quiet. It
    would pobably be in a couple months anyways, so i have plenty of time to think
    Thanks again!
