    I think we have 5 girls and 6 boys, but I'll have to keep checking because up until today, I had no freaking clue what I was looking at down there. :rofl1: So that is subject to change. They're 11 days old now. They feel like SILK, I can't wait for their peepers to open and of course can't wait for them to be old enough for me to bring mine home lol.

    There is a blue girl!! :D Assuming I have the genders correct lol. She's ALL YOURS! :p

    I am getting 3 boys. Probably one of each color, since it appears I have that option... then there won't be any issues telling them apart.

    There are 2 siamese.... 1 appears to be female.... :p

    If you go with a CN, this was the best price I found for a single (idk about doubles since I knew I didn't need that big): http://www.petstreetmall.com/Critter-Nation-Cage/8515/3521/details.html
    Free shipping and no tax. BUT I have not received mine yet (UPS says Tuesday!!) so I should probably wait to see what shape it arrives in before I recommend them!


    I have someone in Missouri that wants a couple boys so I will be going on a road trip to Iowa with them lol. Should be fun. =P

    How many are you planning on getting? YOu should have a minimum of two anyways and I like 3-5 just for groups purposes (and the fact that sadly they are not the healthiest animals and there is a good chance of loosing one young:( )

    IIRC, if you take 2, that will leave a single she needs to find a home for. So you should just go ahead and take 3.
