As you can see, Twilight is settling in nicely and enjoying her new home. I miscalculated how much pellet food I had left today so she suffered having her entire meal for the day being Hay. As you can see, she is terribly upset. So upset that when I did a health check and ran my hand down her back she didn't even stop eating. Such an awful situation. Overall she is a bit more skittish than say, Dawn, but she is getting more friendly by the day.
I got some very useful critique about the weight charts from Caity of domestiCaited which are very helpful. I haven't had a chance to implement them yet, but thanks for the critique. I am definitely going to be putting in what I am weighing in on the chart (grams), and trying for more consistency with my notes.
Dawn's Weight Chart
In Dawn's babies we have seen their growth taper off significantly. Given that this is our first litter we aren't sure if that is normal or not. That said, they are all right around 1 Kg at this point which is half way there to butchering weight. We are hoping they will be there by mid July, but it is hard to know how fast they will actually get there.
Sunny's Weight Chart
Sunny's litter continues to grow quickly and be a bit jumpy. It is difficult to compare their growth weight to Dawn's babies because of how much more consistent the growth rates are for Sunny's litter than Dawns. Over all right now they are significantly heavier than Dawns litter was at the same time.
