Leela is 2 months pregnant now and already you can tell she's pregnant! She had triplets this spring and I'm fairly sure she will again have multiples (praying for no quads!). Since she was a very mediocre mother for her first time, I will be prepared to "assist" her feeding the kids if she has more than 2. For her first freshening she picked one doeling to be her favorite and barely tolerated the other two! They managed to get enough to eat because they would watch carefully when her "favorite" was going in for some milk and one of the other of them would dash onto the other side to get some too. Consequently, the one favorite grew fat and the other two grew more slowly. I ended up keeping miss fatty (Khaki) who is old enough (and definitely BIG enough) to breed this month.
Snow is expected this weekend so I will be getting lots of deep straw in there today for them to snuggle into and stay warm. They do not have their full winter coats yet!
