Nine Going Strong

We lost the second runt this morning. I had marked him yesterday so I could keep track of whether or not he had been fed. After a day and a half, I tried to get him to latch onto Clementine with no avail. Yesterday it was obvious he was not going to make it. A sad truth we are learning in animal husbandry… they won’t all live.

But in happy news, the nine surviving kits are developing some great colors.

If you look in this picture you’ll see a white, a lilac (?), a chocolate, and another white kit.


That brings our estimated colors to: 3 chocolates, 1 lilac, and 5 ruby-eyed whites. We will know everyone’s color for sure, hopefully, by Thursday.
