Beverly's babies did great and are already hitting the show table with awesome comments! Beverly was very sad when I weaned her litter, so I bred her again. Hoping and praying nothing goes wrong! I think I'm going to cull Whitney though. She is the furthest from the Standard out of all my Beverens and I think she is carrying mummified kits from one of her previous pregnancies.

I might be late to suggest anything here, but there is nothing dietary that can cause those kinds of deformities. I had a hard time even understanding that was a kit and placenta I was looking at. O.o

You mentioned they were sensitive though, so I can't help but wonder if the miscarriages might be partially due to something environmental upsetting them?

That is a possibility. It's not like the environment is stressful though. Possibly for Whitney. But Beverly doesn't really stress I don't think. I more of see her happy / sad emotions and she was very sad after she miscarried (kit in the OP). She has since had the successful litter of 3 (one was lost to cold) and should be pregnant again. So I'm really not sure
