Update on the Kits

We are still uncertain about some of the colors.  We know we have a self black, an agouti, and two fawns. 

Self-black, doe
Agouti, doe
Fawns, both does
We might have two blue pearls.  I hope we have two blue pearls.  Because otherwise, we have two blue ermines.  And ermines are unshowable.  

Blue pearls?, does
 And we might have two squirrels.  

Squirrels, one buck and one doe

We're not sure what this one is, either.  He looks like a blue pearl, but his wool is cream-colored, not white.
Blue pearl?, buck
And so far, we have one that is for sure an ermine.  Unless it colors up.  So far, it is pure white.  As an ermine, it is unshowable.  And the judges will know that for sure.  However, the wool is pure white, just like a REW.  Without the red eyes.  So if you really want white wool, don't like red eyes, and aren't going to show, this is a rare opportunity for you!

Ermine, doe

The kits are all growing rapidly.  The black weighs almost a full pound.  The smallest weighs in at 8.8 ounces.  Everyone else is in between these two.  We weigh them daily to make sure that they are all growing well.  The runt is still being supplemented with a bottle. 

Charlotte has sexed all of them a few times.  If they don't change teams, there are eight does and two bucks.  That might be a little much to hope for.
