As some of you know when Ramen had her first litter I had a tough time getting Daddy Herz out of the cage without destroying the nest!
Well as expected, those 2-3 days together resulted in Ramens second pregnancy. Haha.
I kept two of out five of Ramens last litter.
The other three boys went together into a household of a big family.
Funny thing is, all were identical personality and looks.
The first I kept has little agouti faults or markings and clearly retained his fathers calmness.
He also matured 1 - 2 days faster than the rest of the litter.
The second retained Ramens smaller stature but strikingly dark rich black.
Im trying to understand this more, I plan on mating her with a lighter colored male (argente or something along those lines) to see if 1 out of 5/6 of her pups will again retain her darker genes and small stature.
We will also see when this litter grows up more if this is true.
Birth date is maybe July 21. Born early morning Im guessing.
Ramen has an obsessive compulsive desire to run on her wheel for about 2 hours straight then break to give birth.
Then back on the wheel...then again more pups. REPEAT. I always know when shes ready.
Anyway, more fuzzy photos for you, Ramen may be tolerant but ill be cursed if i touch 3 days old pup.
And again like before...shes a great nest builder...to my dismay.
