Thanks !

He's just growing so fast, it makes me worry. Of course I'd worry if it wasn't enough growth or if he was blinking too much, I think worry is just my thing. BUT...what is a good growth rate for a baby chin? I know Ebonies are said to grow slower than others does that hold true for babies?

Riker was born 57.5 g and is 120 g today12 days later.

What a sweet heart! I think his growth rate is fine. Is he an only kit?

Owned by 26 chins, 7 cats, 2 dogs, and 7 aquariums

He is the only kit and my first to boot, so I don't have any first hand knowledge on what is normal.

He is truly awesome and such a gift.

The day he was born was truly unexpected. I had thought she was due in about three weeks. I went down to the chin room before bed to do my chin stuff. It was the anniversary of my fathers death, my brother and his wife had a miscarriage that day and to just top it off my husband's flight was cancelled and he wouldn't be home until the next day and man I needed a hug ! I was about halfway through caring for everyone, and really having a pity party for myself when I heard an odd squeak from one of the cages and I turn around and there was Riker. It was amazing. I got on the phone with my girlfriend it was late at night and I was crying (I was so happy) and she helped me calm down and get everything in order. I was so excited and overwelmed I couldn't even find my hay !! Since I use my hay twice a day and it's in a huge white rubbermaid container, one would think it couldn't be misplaced and my chin room isn't THAT messy ..hahaha.

ANYWAYS...............

Thanks for your comments. I have some more ladies expecting here, I've got the camera standing by. I would love to catch one in labor and get the pictures.

He's precious, Jenn! That first birth is just the best, isn't it?
His growth sounds great to me too. On average, they should gain 2-4 grams per day. He's a single kit so he gets all mom's milk - it's expected that he'll grow faster.
