I can't find my needle nose pliers. Need them to pry the clamps off the cages to join them. 🤬

And weights on everyone except the first litter kits, need a bigger scale for them!
Mutty's kits shot up in size.
64's kits aren't paired up, just random, as I haven't marked them to tell them apart. But I did get genders on them.

I put two lights on timers. Looks like I need a 3rd so they're evenly distributing light.
Cleared out more unnecessary stuff, added wall hooks & hung up jug panels, so there's clear floor space now.
Thinking the shelf with scale needs to move to the center, as it's currently off in a corner & kind of inconvenient.
11 got a nest today, she started digging.
Grumpy made a hole in her nest, so, hopefully live kits soon.
Have 1 nest to attach top to, then it & the other will be ready for 14 & Lynx.

Grumpy had her kits!
Sire is the pedigreed SF.
And had to cover her cage up again. What a nutter.
Anyway, 6 jumping beans.

Looks like 4 black, a blue & a mystery color! Maybe it's a tort.

See her evil eye peaking? Lol.

🤦🏽‍♀️ I'm such a dope.

I got a fishing scale to weigh the adults, and that's when I realized that I had confused the #s. 🤦🏽‍♀️

64 is actually Grumpy. That's her tattoo.
4522(tattoo) is the larger sf.
I confused all three, smaller sf was the 3rd. She sold, so no longer here to further confuse. 😅

Anywho!

Weights time!
Put a nest on SF 11, SF 14, Rex Lynx. So, weights on those will have to wait until a week or so after kindling.

Grumpy just had her kits, so I'll wait until they're out of the nest to weigh her, as everything upsets her & I don't need her to abandon her babies.

Was surprised Mutty was heavier than her brother.

14 tossing hay out and shredding stuff.

Lynx also digging and shredding. Both got chunks of cardboard to curb their destruction. I think I'll cut metal to cover the bottom of the nests.

All adult does now have kits or are expecting kits real soon.

The Silver Fox pedigreed buck update-
From the same breeder as the two big sisters, but unrelated to them. She has 2 bucks to choose from. Waiting on pics & weights to choose one!

#11 had 6 kits last night, 2 died. I think they may of been stuck or a hard delivery.
Sucks, she had 7 the first time, but could only manage 4 live this time. =(
Her sister is due on Monday. She only had a whopping 2 last time, so I'm hoping for more than two and all alive & healthy! 🤞


But in other news...
New boy is here!
Mr "Baymax"(name on ped) is such a pretty color, a lilac otter. No sneezing on the way home, hope it stays that way the next 30 days!
10wks, 5 days old today. So, he was 4lbs 2.5oz at 10wk, 4 days, for future reference once he has kits on the ground.
He'll be 15wks old once QT is over, on Jan 1st.
