Hi all,

Sorry if these Indigo newbie questions are silly, but with the cost of taking the plunge I want to make sure I do things right and don't regret something.

What are the advantages/disadvantages of starting out with a pair that are already nearly 1 year and 2 years old, respectively, when I receive them? Is it more advisable to start out with hatchlings, allowing them and you to get used to each other at an early age? Or will that not make any difference, and the demeanor and calmness of adults won't be affected by raising them since they were hatchlings?

I'm going back and forth on getting a 2011 male along with the 2012 female I have coming. Or instead opting for adding a male that would be a 2013 hatchling.

Can someone with Eastern Indigo experience weigh in?

Thanks!
