Sorry again for this being late! With this new exercise group, I have just been SO exhausted! I couldn't even move yesterday, lol.
So anyways, I did some "cage changing" about 3 weeks ago. (I just put different rats into different cages, so that they could have a new change of scenery.) Well one of my females (Lucy) decided to be sneaky - She squeezed threw the bars of the new cage she was in, and she snuck into one of the boys cages. I ended up finding her in there the next day, and of course she got pregnant.
This picture was taken on Tuesday night - And I am happy to say she had her babies early Wednesday morning.
So I took pictures yesterday about 2 hours after they were born. She had 12 babies! (Wow!)
All seem healthy so far :)
I am going to take pictures every day, and then next Wednesday (for Wordy Wednesday) I am going to show pictures of them everyday, so you can all see how fast they age, and how short of time it takes them to grow up. (I plan on doing this for every Wordy Wednesday, until they are full grown :) )
Here are a couple pictures of the babies (Pinkies) on their first day of life :)
Take notice of the milk in their tummy's :)
By next week I'll be able to tell you all what colors they'll be - If they'll be hairless, or not, and possibly if they will be males or females :)
I can't wait till next week :)
