Don’t let anyone fool you into thinking breeding gerbils makes money. It is pretty much a money hole, but a thumpin’ fun one.
Today I finally acquired a piece of equipment I’ve been wanting for quite a while. A digital gram scale! This makes identifying pregnancy and keeping track of pup growth so much easier!
And now, for the weigh in!
Oliver is the top heavy weight at 80g!
Rory comes in a close second at 73g!
Henry brings up the rear at 71g!
Amy is the heaviest of the light weights at 67g!
The Doctor comes up second at 64g!
River brings up the rear at a modest 61g!
Now, River and Amy are sisters from the same litter, on the same diet, and were the same size when I introduced them to their mates. I can’t say for sure yet, but I think the whopping 6gram difference between the sisters means that Amy will be our first mother! I’ll know for sure in the next day or so, if I see a weight gain in her. Fingers crossed!
Oh, my smallest guinea pig is 893grams. 😀
