    Default Igor is not Igor

    After owning "Igor" for 5 years, I was surprised to find "him" digging last night and this morning I dug up 2 eggs. They look pretty good (they are the biggest and heaviest eggs I've ever seen, as I'm not a leachie or ostrich breeder) so they're in the incubator. I'm not expecting much but I'll keep you posted. I guess I need a new name for Igor.

    Sorry if I wasn't clear. Igor is a leachie (and the eggs are still looking good, though I don't have a light powerful enough to candle them). I may just stay with "Igor". Long ago I got my daughter a bunny and since she was in the middle of a Peter Pan obsession (she was 4), she named it Wendy. After a week I took a good look and realized that "Wendy" was not an appropriate name, so she changed the name to "Wendy's John" (totally unaware at that age of the implication of that name).

    Funny, I had a green anole that I thought was a male, showing typically male territorial behavior. But then "he" started laying eggs as well . I did not have to change her name, as Peppermint was fairly gender neutral. My parents also used to have a monkey named Spunk, who was later re-named Spunkine ;-).

    How about Iga?
