Yay Neo! Did you have to find a paper bag to breathe into? Or did Rob offer to catch you when you fainted? :lol:

My husband thought I'd gone stark raving bonkers when I found my first batch of eggs. I DEFINITELY understand the feeling! :lol:

Great news Neo. :D

I thought it was unlikely that all your zebs would be males, for months I thought the same of my lot and they eventually proved me wrong. I guess you can ease up on your relentless search for females now. :wink:

Well done mate and keep us posted. :D
