    How adorable!! I just love Bob babies!! How old are they Missi, as I am trying to figure out who is a male and who is a female. I think I might see MAYBE 2 females in there. It is hard to tell with the camera light.

    Great looking babies!!!! [​IMG]

    Edit to add: The one standing by the food dish alone, looks like a she to me. The one you are holding looks like a cute boy. And I think I see another girl in there somewhere. If you do have 2 pair, that would be perfect!! Although somebody will be the odd one out. [​IMG]

    Quote:Awwwee Thank you!! Good to know from those more familiar with bobs that they are looking good & healthy! The camera flash does throw off the colors some but I try to correct that in Photoshop so they look as similar to their actual coloring as possible, though I did these quickly because I was excited to get them up here to show y'all [​IMG]

    Missi, make sure to offer them a place to get off the wire if they need to so that they can give their feet a rest. A dusting pan with dirt or sand will be dual purpose addition, giving them a place to bathe and get off the wire. [​IMG]

    Quote:Thanks for the reminder! I'll be adding a dust/sand pan this weekend. Originally, I dumped pine shavings on top of the wire but they didn't stay there for long [​IMG] I'll be adding a shelter this weekend, as well. Going to place straw in it for a nice little cozy hide.
