Well I know you all like baby pictures so here's some of my trips that are oh so adorable.
It seems Candi our White Ebony female has a big-litter gene in her. We've put her with two different males and both times she's had triplets!!! She has done a lovely job of throwing in her white and ebony genes into the babies so we've gotten alot of color in her kits. Her first trips were a White Ebony Male, a Tan Male and an Ebony Male. ALL BOYS! There is something with her and NOT producing females! Cuz guess what! The trips born this time...WERE ALL BOYS TOO!
There is wayyyyy too much testosterone in this house
These guys will be shown at the 2006 MCBA Natl's and help me towards getting Junior Breeder Award again. The ebony may be shown at an earlier show and sold, if i have some other babies soon. But the two White ebonies will def be at MCBA Natl's and if one of them gets a 1B or better I will be keeping them and possibly selling one of my older males, who is slow to get his girls pregnant.
So, being triplets, they made things very difficult. The first one out, rascal decided he wanted to pick on his brothers and just wouldn't leave them be. Luckily we had a female that had kits a week before so we fostered him to her, which was surprisingly easy. And have been rotating her previous two kits and him. Leaving the other two of the trips with mom. Since the kits were a week older than rascal they wouldn't let him boss them around and we are going to try to have all three together tomorrow and monitor them, since the twins are already eating some regular food.
HERE ARE PICTURES!!!
First up is Rascal, the little devil child. I was going to name him Fang but my mom would let me. LOL he never holds still and is always trying to get out of the holding cage and was climbing all over his foster mom at only 4 hours old.
Look at all the color on hiM!!!
