Four adorable Syrian (teddy bear) hamsters will be ready to go this coming Saturday. Two are black and white and two are brown and white. Another litter of Syrian hamsters is due 1/23 with a new male (we'll see if he's a better performer than the previous male).
Gerbil babies are doing well. The litter of four from Ruby and Dean were born 1/4/13 and should be ready for new homes around six weeks old (2-15).
I now have three female chinchillas in nursery cages awaiting babies (likely not until February). One is a beige/mosaic pairing, one is a homo-beige/ebony pairing, and the other is a brown velvet/ebony pairing. It'll be interesting to see what colors the new ebony male throws.
After months of trying, Mama Bun kindled a litter of four baby bunnies on 1/9/13. There are three reds and one white. The dad is a purebred New Zealand Red, mom is a mixed breed (possibly New Zealand/Himilayan?). Babies will be weaned at six weeks old (2/20).
Still no babies in the dwarf hamster cage, but she's getting big, so soon I would think!
