My girl Suni is about to pop (due date on/around 02/03) Both her and daddy are pedigreed from PVR!
At the time of breeding, Suni weighed 265 grams. This morning, she weighed in at a whoopin' 355 grams!!

Let's see...90g gain with 2-ish days yet to go...babies born 5-6g each (not factoring in milk, mom's fat, placenta,etc) would yield 15-18 babies. 

My guess is  13 babies.   :heart:

The parents are bootiful :D  The prize for guessing correctly definately needs to be one of their equally bootiful bubs  :poke:

:P 14 babies

BaraLahatiel has guessed correctly!!! Suni had 14 SunBug babies this morning but unfortunately 3 were still born. I didn't mess with them too much, cause Suni had just given birth and hadn't started nursing yet. I took out the stillborn babies. Most of the babies appeared to be light eye'd. All will be dumbo.

Hopefully I can get some pics tonight!!

lol I didn't expect to be right. I figured she'd have fewer than that. Wow what a first litter! I am sorry to hear about the 3 who didn't make it, but it is less stress on her consequently.

Hmm, I wonder what you'd have found if a guy had won. I think it'd been funny to see a guys face when he got that price. A princess rat lol Either Tino will steal it and play with it like his Rudolf and Santa stuffed animals or I'll stick it back where he can't reach! Ha ha!  :BlueDumboSmileTongue:

Can't wait to find out what sex they are and how they'll look!

I dunno.. he gets a little 'involved' with his stuffed animals. Particularly Santa  :doh: He carries them around and so on as well.

Tino's funny. He loves rats, young or old, and loves to cuddle and play with them. However, with his own puppies, he's scared to death. You set one beside him and he runs, ears back like he's scared to death of them! But he's very protective regardless.

YAY babies!  So cute and gummi bear like!  Sorry to hear about the 3 little ones, why do you suppose they died?  Too crowded in the womb?  Hopefully the others will be okay!  I can't wait to see them grow up :D

The babies are doing great! I need to get pics but it's been crazy around here with the weather and I went on a cleaning spree the last 2 days.

There are 5 dark eye'd pups and 6 light eye'd pups. I haven't sexed them yet but will do so tonight when I do pics. Suni has been a very good mom, a little nervous but she's taking very good care of her babies  :-* :heart:

Here's some new pics of the SunBugs! We lost 2 more last night, not sure why. All the pups have milk bellies, they're warm and Suni is being a very good Mommy. I guess it's going to be one of those things we'll never know.

3 light girls - Fox, Squirrel and 'Possum
2 light boys - Toad and Turtle
3 dark girls - Skunk, Rabbit and Badger
1 dark variberk boy - Moose (MINE!)
