a new litter of 7 degus (2 are grey) was born last night. This is the first litter in a long time with a runt but all four litters this year had a single fur-less stillborne. A baby chinchilla was also born but I am not sure who is the mother as the two girls I suspected were pregnant are still fat. There is lots of complaining as the baby tries to find nipples on the chinchillas and I failed to find nipples myself. Hopefully the baby is not being neglected. She seems healthy and strong for a baby but her eyes are not open yet so maybe a bit premature.
