    So, my husband agreed to "letting" me breed 2 does again now that the other litters are cleared out (down to the ones we're keeping for now)... Thinking of doing Hershey, my chocolate doe and Zelda with Pete, my broken castor buck. Bound to get lots of castors and brokens. But I want to see how the offspring for Hershey and Pete fill out. Both those have so far taken home a couple of BoV, BoSV with the 2 shows we have gone to so far. And the next show isn't for 2 months, or 3 if i don't feel like travelling 3ish hours each way...

    Palpation day!

    I was able to feel jelly beans in Hershey. Not sure on Zelda, I don't know if its because her mammary glands are larger than last time. I *think* she is, but you never know.

    Well this morning I came out to Zelda haystaching. Nest boxes supposed to go in Fri... Hershey is not haystaching, but was looking worried this morning (if that is possible). Picking hay out of the hay rack and dropping it on the bottom of her cage by the hay rack. She was also desperate for attention this morning, where as I usually take time to pet them every night at feeding time, she was wanting attention this morning too. Kinda odd because neither of the girls look huge this time where as last time both Penelope and Zelda were HUGE the last week. :idunno

    Zelda is big and round and ready to pop. Hershey is.... Not. She's back at the weight when I bred her and Zelda to Pete. She readily bred to him again, and bred Penelope to a Lynx buck from Zelda's last litter, so crossing my fingers Hershey took this time. Would be a shame if she hits the 3 try rule...

    Tonight Zelda has blood drops on her resting board, and a bit of blood on her tail, is laying stretched out looking mighty uncomfortable. Had a teen calling in a panic about the blood. Advised she's starting labor and to leave her be!

    We have babies! 5 alive, 3 dead. The dead ones were 1 tiny one, one super elongated one (got stuck/squished?) And one large one missing a head. Cleaned the bodies and bloody straw out of the best box and one placenta. Looks like 3 solid castors and 2 broken living. It looked like the dead were 2 broken 1 solid. Sad day, but yay babies!
