I currently have 4 or 5 of the subspecies, 12 to 13 in total - always looking for adult females. Remember these are my opinions. 30 days should be adequate, make sure to have fecal tests completed by a vet, and make sure that their noses are not running. I will give mine panicur once, wait two weeks and once again, yearly as preventive, as we have quite a few bird species deficating in the backyard, and they may be harboring parasites.

California is not too himid, so I can't answer your question on himidity, although combined with cold, could/would be dangerous. I do know that others have Greeks in himid areas. I am looking to buy a digital camera, so I can't yet post any pics.

:That is what I thought. Has your herd had any little ones. I'd love to see picts. I have 1.2. What do you have?
:I have had my male for over a year. The 2 females I just got from Ray @ HBR. I hope to get them outside in a month or two. The humidity here in central IL is high during the summer. Can I still keep them outside? I know they like hot temps and low humidity.
:Also how long of guarintine should I give the females? I was planing on 30 days if they are still looking good. Ray said he gave them one treatment of Flagil(not sure about spelling) and Pestacid. I was planing on giving them 1 treatment of Panacure. What is your thoughts on that?

:
::Lots of ramming/butting, and when the male mounts the female lots of squiking - ha ha - I am not even going there, although I am tempted.

::Careful, females will sometimes the same behavor - the dominance theory.

:::What is the courtshipp like for greeks?
