I think DocB is serious here. He likes things with protruding teeth!

Doc. Finkley Down Farm in Picket Piece, Andover, Hants, have a big colony of chipmonks. Try calling them. They are so cuuuuute.

It's a ploy to get round to the the bald bloke in the chippy who gets to say the line "...I'm the Friar."

hmm...now Im not that sure...do you mean breeding like raising them?

I did never raise chipmunks, we dont have them here in Germany.
But I raise a lot of red squirrels....pretty familiar I think...






aahh...sorry, just love them  :D

So, why do you ask?

Make sure the shed is soundproof: their high-pitched singing is really annoying.   :)
