Kristen has babies!

Kristen kindled tonight around 10pm or so to 5 little babies. As I had figured, she had them all over the cage, on the wire . . . only one was on her hay nest she had made in the corner. I'm so glad she had them now instead of in the middle of the night. I was expecting her to have them today and all over the cage - JUST like her mom, Val, did on her first litter (except, all 4 of Val's babies died).

Kristen is doing great, ate some oats & raspberry leaves out of my hand. She's not eating pellets yet (hasn't for a few days), but I think she'll be fine.

I made a nest for the babies in Kristen's box and I think they'll all be fine. I'll check them one more time before I head to bed in a bit.

It looks like she has 3 "pinks" and 2 sables/smoke pearls . . . hard to tell since they were born half an hour or less when I found them. A couple of them have pretty bruised faces, but they should be okay.
