    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!!!!
