I do not mind reputable couriers and have had some of my last clutch couriered previously. They are definately hardy lol. There have been updates from previous buyers so I will try and find some links of the threads for you to read.
Hi, if you mean risky getting a baby as in they may be delicate I would not worry about that as they are very sturdy once they get to selling age. I never sell mine under 8 weeks of age. Yes they can take some taming down so if you would rather not bother with all that then a more tame older one is best for you yes. The only problem with shops is the price they charge especially for adults. My I ask what they are charging? I do have eggs at the moment and they are due to hatch within the next few weeks so should be ready around July.
