:gwavec OMG!!!!!! :eek: :shock:
I'm so shocked and amazed and excited!!!!
Flitter just gave birth a few mins ago!!! which I thought was odd as I read up the time usually be between 10-2.
But nevermind!!! Shes had her first litter omg they're so tiny.
Dont worry I havent disturbed her I just peeped through her cage and she has a hole in the top of her house that a
sneekly put there so I could look without touching :cool: I cnt see how many there are yet though but I just saw a small pile of pink wriggly things! :lol:
Do I just leave her now?
I hope she doesnt eat her babies or anything, is there any reason why she would so I can avoid it happening.

I'M SO HAPPY!!!!
and I just realised how lucky I was I changed her cage this morning as she felt so much bigger, I thought just to be on the safe side I'll do it now..phew!

I'll try to get some pics in a few days and see how many there are. best to leave her for now.

The house is a cut up box I put in they keep tipping over on the side should I change it for a bigger house or will they be okay. Not sure if I shud do anything? :?
Its tipping over because they're trying to cram in all the bedding I gave them :lol:

Well I had a check in today and she had 14 little ones!!!
I brought it down to 11 as I couldn't justify taking anymore out, it was so hard :cry:
I was gonna make it so there was 10 but just couldn't do it.
and I know 10 is too much still but, I think she's doing really well and the little I took out should help her.
I'm still really chuffed. :)
And I tried to sex them, if I did it right I think I've got 5 does and 6 bucks which Im happy with.
But it is my first go so prob got it wrong lol.
:D

Well the first 2 pale ones on the right look like they're going to have pink eyes as all the others have darker shadows
where their eyes are. So I'm just guessing thats what it is. otherwise I'm a little worried why they look so different!!! :lol:

These were taken today and I'm so amazed at how fast they grow!
Can anyone tell what kind of colours they might be as the paler ones I'm really unsure of, they don't look blue like flitter?



especially this one? He looks more grey.


sorry they're so big!!

So here they are at 3 weeks!
They're all very big and lovely :D
I think some of them might be stone vari's but others are more grey not sure what to call this.
I'm confused if some are stone where this has come from, is it possible that a pale stone would look grey?

I think your right I think they may very well all be stone some with a paler variation as you say :D
didn't think I would get so many of this colour I was expecting mostly blues and blacks but this is better!
