    Well Ruby has started making a nest at day 20. Hopefully this is just her way of of doing things and is not a false pregnancy. She has also started to be super friendly asking for attention every time I pass by her cage. Crossing my finger for a large healthy litter! :fl

    Mama Ruby has finally started making a nest in her hide-hole! I missed getting a picture of her hay staching. Thankfully I decided to but the pine shavings yesterday so I dont have to destroy her hard work. SAM_5449.JPG SAM_5450.JPG SAM_5454.JPG

    Ruby had her kits! She has 4 healthy black ones and 1 DOA. Pictures soon to come.

    I do have a question, the DOA was very pale grey skin and looked under developed but the same size as the live ones. Does anyone know what would cause this...

    They are super wiggly and vocal! I think Topaz (the sire and ruby's next door neighbor) is more upset with us getting them out than ruby is....
    Two of them have a small white spot on there head. The parents are supposed to be 100% silver fox (we have pedigrees). Is it possible they are not or is this something that pops up in silver foxes?

    Thank you! I did some ready and the white spots do show up in silver foxes. I was hoping for a bigger litter, but I cant complain to much because she is a great mom and we are breeding for our own consumption. When our blue SF doe gets to breeding age it will be nice to have a foster mom back up plan. Not sure if its due to her breeding too early or our blue bucks sperm. Only time will tell.
