end of the day

Well it is end of day one with babies here with me and so far so good. It is looking up for them. Today we got a free heating pad to put under the box and all so that's doing well the temp is staying at about 80 degrees F or 26 degrees C. (if i put the pad higher it will heat too much).

As soon as i can get the picture's up of them milking i will.

Also looking more into baby rats and such those guys to me look about 7 to 9 days old. The hair on them is very visible right now.also looking at other baby pictures in the book "rats practical,accurate advice from the expert" by Debbie Ducommun there is a picture of a 5 day old baby rat with almost no hair just a bit of spikes like.

till tomorrow.

the weight on them is:
girl:10.72 grams
boy:12.15 grams
