Baby Time

Posted by Melody Knieriem on June 10, 2011 at 11:03 AM

     Well, the first batch of babies was a huge sucess! I had 13 does due & 11 of them kindled. Only Tonya & Sally missed. Some big litters, some small but 33 babies in all. So proud of our first time moms, 5 of them & not a single kit on the wire! Quinn was the only one that struggled a bit. Her babies were born 2 days early & were so tiny. I wasn't sure if they were all peanuts or not. I also wasn't sure they were eating so I held Quinn on her back & let each baby nurse. She was so good, never gave me a bit of trouble. I gave one of her babies to Surprise to foster & let Quinn keep the other 2, even though I wasn't sure how she would do. She is in the box constantly & the babies are growing, so I am very happy. This is my first litter from Chrome :)

     I have a few colors I am excited about & a couple I'm not sure about. Jewelie X Toby gave me a Chestnut & a couple of Oranges. Amber X Yogi gave me a Blue Otter/Marten & maybe a Sable Marten. I think I got a Sable Marten from Kimber as well, & a total of 7 marked Dwarf Hotots! Yaaaay!!! Our next round of babies are due on the 17th & 18th. 11 does due & 7 of them are first time Moms. Keeping my fingers crossed & planning to live in the barn those couple of days :)
