I will do. Itll be tomorrow, Ive just had a banging headache today and theyre smaller than the others and impossibly squirmy. Whatever we get Ill be chuffed, theyre a gorgeous litter
I really hope this was just a case of her de-runting as you say and the others will be safe. They all look well at the moment. Sorry to hear about your ratty runt Its gutting, isnt it?Effy said:Aw, which one was it which is gone?
The latest our rats ever decided to de-runt a litter was 14 days...which was a bit upsetting, as it was very late and the runt was actually my favourite of the litter! :lol:
It's harder when you've had time t get used to them, but just remember that she's doing what she thinks is best and that you still have 6 lovely babies. ^_^
What sex are the unknowns, then? Bucks? (Trying to guess, since you said the one which is gone was slightly smaller and that's had to tell from the pics.)
She was definitely a couple of days behind development wise...to be honest she hadnt much changed down there since only being a couple of days old, which is why I struggled, whereas the others were very obvious by the time she went. You can kind of see on this pic and the one further back how much pinker she was than the others, but you cant well too well how much smaller and slower she wasEffy said:I suppose them being unknowns was a bit of a sign in itself.
