      Bummer that stinks, it always seems when the slug to baby ratio is 50% or worse they drop early.

                Well the end result was 5 live premies and 2 stillborn, 10 slugs. One thing though that is interesting, all the babies looked anery. I dont know the genetics of mom and dad, they were both given to us from friends that also didnt know. but there is no red coloring at all.....ill get pictures another time. im bummed out. But i still have one more gravid mom to go, but shes not due for a little while. Hopefully that litter will be better.

                Shout out to Eddie(Snake77), we are still somewhat in the same boat my friend

                  I think I remember Jeff saying that the babies look like that when they are premie because they dont get color until right before birth. A few months back somebody else posted I believe a half slug half baby, maybe twins? that looked anery and also a still born premie that looked anery also. Im not sure, just going off late night memory.

                      Man that totally stinks. I'm sorry.

                      I was so excited to breed this year nov 1st. if everything was a go (It'll be my first litter). But after this local girl stuff and all the premature babies going around I must say it's scareing the crap out of me a little..

                        Sorry to hear the news. I hope the premature babies make it.

                        Keep your chin up. You've got another litter in the works that could be stellar. Good luck.

                            This is correct. Preemies will have a purplish/anery look to them. If they survive, the color will eventually come in.

                            Good luck with them!
