  • 2015 Litter #2: Sugar X Schneller's Redline

    Dam:


    Sire:


    Sugar Pastel X Schneller's Redline (Sugar Redlines)

    Born 25 May 2015

    23 Live
    1 Kinked Cull
    1 Stillborn
    5 Slugs

    I came into this litter being born around 11:30 am. As I was looking through the babies already born, the dam was pushing out an additional baby that was already broken from its sac but was taking in breaths so I was not concerned.

    However, over five minutes later I realized the baby was still not coming out the rest of the way despite the mother pushing so I grabbed into the baby and pulled it from the birth canal during another attempt. When I removed the baby I realized it was alive but horribly kinked and, as a result, had lodged itself in the birth canal.

    It was then I realized other babies had gotten stuck behind the kinked baby and they were coming out broken from their sacs and not breathing.

    I was able to revive most of these babies, but they are weak and may not make it, however, had I not been there, things could have gone worse.

    The dam was able to push out two more babies with their sacs intact and a final slug which completed the birthing process.

    The dam and the majority of the litter are doing well, but the five or six who had been trapped behind the deformed baby are not out of the woods yet.

    For a first time mother I am mostly pleased with the outcome.

    No, you cannot have the striped baby. Lol















    The kinked baby that was stuck in the birth canal and subsequently culled.


    Enjoy.

        Beautiful babies! Glad you were there to help the mom out, hope the ones that came out last make it. That striped baby looks amazing! Does either line have a history of producing striped babies like that?

          Sugars do.

          Some of the other Schneller stuff does as well. It's impossible to say who was responsible.

                No one has been lost through the first night.

                These are the two weakest of the group that came out behind the kinked baby, they also appear to be a bit premature, I am assuming this is because of one of two factors, or both; they are babies that came from ova dropped a bit later than the rest and then fertilized or they are a set of twins. I have no way of knowing for sure they are twins, but they came out in a tangled mess together with their cords already separated and their sacs ruptured.

                They weigh 32 grams and 36 grams respectively to their placement in the photo.

                They are burying themselves in the moss now and resisting my touch where before they were limp, mostly listless, noodles. They are not, however, flicking their tongues so they are no where near out of the woods yet.

                        I'm sorry to hear of the troubles with the litter, Diem, but congrats on an otherwise great litter!

                        I hope everything works out with those currently considered to be weaklings.
