Is it her first litter? Sometimes the first litter is small. The smallest litter I've had was 5 babies. I left the litter unculled and they grew up to be some of the biggest babies I've ever had. :p

I had a period of about two months during which I had litters of one, two, or three by three different does. I think it may have something to do with the season, or the lighting conditions,or some other thing. Does are mounted many times before they actually conceive and the less experienced bucks may not accurately deliver the necessary 'payload' when they complete the job. I would suppose that obese meeces have an entirely different set of difficulties conjugating.

I'm sure they're adorable! If you can, post pictures. :)

Getting rid of the runt will free up some of the resources he'd use for the others. It's for the betterment of the whole litter to cull runts as soon as it's apparent that they're runts. Some people just can't bring themselves to do this though, so it's just a suggestion which you're free not to take. :)
