Charlie welcomed four healthy fat little babies this weekend. She has what appears to be two Blue Silver Martins or Otters, a solid Blue, and a Black Silver Martin or Otter. We are very excited about a possible Blue!! It will be very fun to watch these babies grow!
Charlie's first litter. The Sire is Ginger. Charlie has been a wonderful mother and is raising all three of her kits. This litter we decided to try something new. Since Charlie is an inside bun, I bought her a chinchilla dust bathing box to build a nest in. It is perfect for her size. The downside was that the babies could fall out of the low door and one day 1-3 they did when she was feeding although they stayed warm in the fleece cage liner.
By day four mama bun had figured out she could barrier the entrance with a fleece blanket and babies have stayed put ever since. It has been a fun adventure! She has a black, a broken black, and a third broken. It is either a broken black otter, broken sable point, or maybe a chocolate. I am excited to watch it grow!
Sophia gave birth to four beautiful babies!! So far everyone is doing very well. She built a huge nest as you can see!
Two Ruby-Eyed Whites
Broken Sable Pearl
Sire is Peter, a Broken Fawn
Dam is Sophia, a Sable Pearl
Born 1/19/2018 and was just brought home. She is eight weeks old as of 3/16/2018 and I believe she is a solid fawn. Very sweet but shy baby girl.
Ok, so they aren't rabbits but these little babies needed to be in the nursery too! They hatched around 3/6/2018. So fluffy!
Babies Due the Week of April 9th 2018. Fingers crossed for healthy babies & good mothering.
Handled since four days of birth. This was Jills first litter. She had five and has been raising all five successfully.
Little Scoot the runt was rather small and watched close to make sure he was eating well. Jills full milk came in at five days after birthing the babies and she is a full on milk machine now.
At four and half weeks old now I cannot even tell scoot was ever the runt.
It appears that Jack and Jill produced two blacks (buck and doe), two blue does, and a lilac buck.
Will be trying again later in the year.
