A breeder friend of mine has lost one of her best doe's. A large chinchilla who has had litters in the past and was a excellent mother. She was fine the day before her due date. Making a nest and was very large. My friend came home and found Sylvia in her nest box, it looked like she was sleeping but she was dead . There was some blood around her tail. This may sound morbid but my friend opened her up to try and save the kits. It was a large litter and all were dead. There was a large breach birth kit in the birth canal. Could this be what killed Sylvia?
