Dandelion delivered healthy kits this morning! Nine in total! Quite an improvement from her first litter of six last spring. Keep those fingers crossed for a runt-less litter! Runts usually show themselves in the first three days when they are half the size of their litter-mates and they usually do not make it past the first week. So cross those fingers and toes.
In a few days I will have a pretty good idea of what colors we have and at six-weeks old I will be able to properly sex all of the kits. This litter will also give me a good idea of Obsidian’s color genotype allowing me to better calculate litter colors for his offspring and better breeding matches.
