Okay... in the past week and a half my fiance's grandmother who was like a mother passed away so between services and getting ready for the holiday we have been slammed! Everyday we go outside to feed the animals 3-4 times a day depending on freezing temps. Well we really didnt think the mating took for our female new zealand and since she doesnt go to the bathroom in her nesting box... we never check it. Well tonight my husband was filling their water and the female was out of the box and he noticed straw in the box moving! 11 BABIES!!! Covered in fur and all alive! We dont know when it happened though as this is our first litter. We thought we saw a couple eyes almost open so maybe close to a week? What do you think? If we dont know exactly... when should we ween them? I dont want to do it too soon.
