Litter AL Update: 2 Week Weighing

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Litter AL is now 2 weeks old.  They have not fully opened their eyes and are still squinty-eyed.  This litter arrived with 5 kits.  Doe Pearl (JW) has been nursing her five kits along with the fostering of three kits from Litter AM.  Pearl looks to be producing enough milk to adequately nurse all eight kits.  The following are the weights of Pearl’s one week old kits in pounds: 0.63, 0.56, 0.53, 0.44, 0.34.  Most of the kits are exceeding the 0.50 pound weight that we would like to see at two weeks of age.

This litter has a runt who is significantly behind in development.  For comparison sake, we are including a pic of the runt next to the largest kit in the litter.
