In other news, the Harlequin doe (Dora) that was bred to the New Zealand buck (Porkchop) is due tonight or tomorrow night. She's quite heavily pregnant at this point. Her belly nearly drags on the floor, her tummy extends down behind her legs when she stands up, and when she lays down she has to put her feet back because she no longer has any leg room! She has a nest box and has not been pulling any fur. Today I gave her a large amount of loose hay and she immediately set to building a nest. Hopefully we'll have a new litter in the next 24-48 hours!
I've added a new page to the site. This page introduces all of the breeding chinchillas and rabbits, so people can see who the parents are, where the babies are coming from, and get a feel for the size of my little breeding groups (no mass-production here, everyone has a name, a personality, and and is part of the family). The page is called Meet The Animals. I will try my best to keep it as updated as the rest of the website.
