Winter Litters

Post Number:#1  Unread postby Mini Lop Fan » Wed Jan 08, 2020 7:32 pm


Let's do something fun! Anyone expecting or have some cute winter litters?

I am just counting down the days till my Steel Mini Lop Mama gives birth. She has been pulling fur and started making her nest...hopefully I will have some babies by Tuesday! :popcorn:

I have two japanese does who are due in a week, one black and one chocolate. They are proven, but it'll be their first time with me. Can't wait to see what they throw!!

Hope those litters go well. Would love to see some pictures of their babies after they're born!

Both does were over a year old, proven, but first timers for me, as I only recently acquired them. Both does built a glorious nest exactly where it should be and then produced near identical gigantic stretched-out kits. :( (The does do not share one single name on their pedigrees.) I'm going to go ahead and diagnose this as environmental instead of genetic. Most likely just too much body fat, which is easy to do with harlis. I will rebreed in about a week to keep the ball rolling for them and expect better results in march. :)

That is not fun.

The doe I was hoping on, who same as you, was proven but I just acquired her, never delivered any babies, even though she pulled some fur. Unfortunately, this is her second strike - I think I am going to have to get rid of her.
