I have been wanting a tri color mini rex for a while now.. Well, We had a tri color kit, but someone wanted to buy her. So anyways, Sissy, my harlequin doe had her kits the other day, 6 of them.. but unfortunately she had them outside the nest box. 3 died. The other three, I was able to warm up enough. I tried putting them back in the hutch with her but noticed that she did not want them there (she jumped on them as soon as I put the box and the kits back in, and looked to be stomping on them). I tried this a couple times and same results. I wasworried that if I left them in there, they would all die as well. So, I put the three remaining kits into the nest boxwith my 10 day old kits (mostly to keep them warm) I ws going to try to get them to nurse while I was holding Sissy. Well, I went back ou, tried to do that, and it didn't go so well. So, I put them back in the box and back in Bubbles' hutch. Next thing I knew, Bubbles was in the nest box and all kits were nursing, her 10 day old ones AND Sissy's newborn ones. Yay!! They are now 2 days old and doing wonderful. All kits are warm and have full belies! So, anyways, in the remaining three, it appears that I have 1 tri color kit (yay!) and 2 broken red. Will post pics in a couple days.
