x Demaris Broken Chestnut EL 16" 7.5# DSC02629.JPG
litter of 7 born 1/30/2016 unfortunately lost 4 in first 2 weeks as Demaris was wanting to lay in the nest box, and kept rearranging it.
3 does were weaned. 1 black, 1 broken black and 1 broken chestnut DSC02538.JPG DSC02540.JPG
Plans: Keeping the 2 Brokens to show then possibly keep one to breed, put Demaris up for sale as too many related does

Plans: Keeping best doe to show, selling the rest (probably as pets due to short ears), Selling Moon, love his fur but not EL, type

Not an expert at palapation, but fairly sure Alena and Elsa palapated positive. Was on the fence with Holly...then she was collecting hay tonight. So am wondering about a false pregnancy, today is only day 17.... :fl:fl:fl:fl

My Jr does. Hopefully will show next month. They are both 12 weeks.
From litter 1 (P6D12) NCM_0294-1.JPG
and litter 2 (P6T12)NCM_0287.JPG
Guess I need to pick some names.
And we got some anxious mamas (day 22 for Holly and 23 for Alena)
NCM_0338-1.JPG NCM_0342-1.JPG Holly gathers the hay but isn't nesting beyond that so :fl that is not a false! Elsa is fat and Sassy too. Very excited for these litters. :weee

Boxes are in, nests are built. Elsa and Alena both pulled hair last night... usually Alena doesn't pull until right before kindling on day 31. They are both day 28, Holly is day 29. :fl:fl:fl got to love when the experienced ones change things up.

Elsa had 7 kits this evening! She was really crazy nesting at evening chores so was sure it was tonight! All seems well. :love:weee:love:weee:love:celebrate

Thinking Holly had a false, today was day 31 for her.:he..will give her a couple more days. She built a hay nest but hasn't pulled hair. Alena usually goes overnight day 30. She's a nice nest, complete with hair. :cool:
