The New Babies

These are the two boys. The bigger one was born first and weighed 4 lb 14 oz. The other one was born second and is the runt of the 4 weighed in at 3 lb 8 oz. We think he was squeezed inbetween his big brother and sisters so didn't get as much growing room. The third one born and only one named so far is Hidden Haven Dreaming Lisa. She weighed in at 3 lb 12 oz and is named after their Godmother Lisa over at Heart of the Nest . The fourth one born has her momma's attitude! She weighed in at 4 lb 4 oz. I am waiting to name the others till my grandson Quintin picks a name. I promised him a few months ago he could name one. As soon as he picks and names it I will name the others. Mom and babies are doing fine. They are nursing good and Diva has lots of milk. Her udder is as big as a cows! We milked her this morning and saved the milk to help with feeding the kids as its kinda hard feeding 4 when you only have 2 teats.

Hey this is William, Windy's owner. Those are some pretty kids. I hope Sammi will go ahead and have hers. Are you going to keep Diva's kids? Windy is doing great and growing like a weed.
