Confused first time mum

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, my Jill at 3 yrs is a great worker and has given birth to 9 kits this morning.shes in a bed of shavings, and has been putting them in the corner of the nest box while only the seemingly stronger one's are getting into suckle.throughout the day I've been able to get her out for feeding while I gather the kits from the corner which are cold at this stage into a pile in the nest. This evening I've I've taken my lassies hot water bottle (fleece covered)and stuck it in with them. I'm hoping the one's on the outside will be warm enough to make it through the night and be strong enough to make there way into the jills milk.
