English Angora Kits- 5 days old

Dalilah's kits will be a week old tomorrow.  This photo was taken on their fifth day during a nest-keeping break.  It was needed!.  There are definitely four whites, one black, a chocolate and two darkish agouti.  They are thriving, even the wee runty white one.  I feel very fortunate that a first time mum is able to take care of all eight kits.  Clover remains defiantly kit free.  I bred three does the same weekend an only one took which is disappointing. Now to decide whether to breed Clover again or not...she just turned a year, and if I don't do it now we never will....but....eight kits!  Yikes.  Look at their sweet tiny feet....

  1. The kits all look really healthy. Congrats. If Clover hasn't produced you may want to rebred her right away for best results.

    My favorite Satin Angora doe had 7 healthy kits a couple hours ago. I'm really excited. She's a great doe with a wonderful disposition. The sireis a half brother.
