    Heather you are wise to be "on board".. I spoke with Richard not long after that and used it for my redfoots -
    being Omnivorous they could handle just about anything.. in their diet - so I "misted-them-til-they-drip" to coin a phrase.

    What Richard did not mention in his article [ which he divulged in our conversation ] was that there were many who did not accept it. In fact they laughed him out of a meeting later on when he introduced the "temperature-sex" theory!

    This is just one example of "mist-them-til-they-drip" -

    And to show that this is not an isolated case.. these are all 2 - 3 year olds raised in high ambient humidity -

    And the best part is.. it doesn't matter where on the planet you live - it can be incorperated there too!

    [ can you see those 3 monkeys today that don't want to - "hear it .. see it .. or speak it" ? ]

    Redfoot nerd,
    Those are great looking redfoots. What exactly do you mean about temperature sex, that brought laughter to Fife?
