Blue rex has been using nest as toilet, totally refusing to use it otherwise.
Gave her a bunch of new hay & she got to work. Pulled fur, had some in the hole, 4 outside. Added more hay to tuck them in the back & moved the 4 in with the rest.
Blue doe added more fur to her nest. Still waiting on the broken doe to kindle.
Got 4 nests stuffed with hay and ready to hang up. Also moved Freckles', Speedy's & Darkie's kits out together.
Speedy nest on Tuesday, Amber & Darkie on Wednesday, Freckles & Lynx on Friday.
Zero next Wednesday.
The broken is a day older & a lot smaller. Pure sf doing lots better than the cross.
Blue doe's kits escaped the nest & cage. So, I filled a nestbox and put it into the back of the cage. 6 kits. All well fed.
The, lynx2.0(? Not sure if that's her color or not), doe's kits are fed. One was out of nest, so I redid their nest to make it deeper.
Her broken blue otter buddy living with her is still due to kindle. Idk if she'll nest elsewhere or use the same box.
Need to downsize. Who to cull...Started feeding the blanket kits to the pup. Going to cull blue doe once kits are 4wks. Still need to look over the proven does from before to cull 1-2 of those as well. They just cost too much to feed.
Moved some buns around, then cages, then buns, then cages again. Lol
So hot out. Had to move them away from the morning and southern walls.
But it's funny, bc the carports are cooler at nthan the barn. But barn is cooler during the day.
Moved 7 kits to the cull cage from a few different litters.
11's 2 black kits are also culls, but didn't move them out. As well as some others from other litters, but don't want to crowd the cage, especially since it's so hot out.
Gotta sweep out the floor, too, but it has to wait for nightfall.
Otter buck that got saved last time lost it this time.
