Uh oh...

I had a big scare today... I went out around 11 this morning to check on Bella (who, by the way, hasn't kindled yet) and found that Haylie's cage, which is on the end of the stand, had fallen off!  I have NO idea how in the world that happened since it was totally sturdy on there.  Weird.  Anyways, poor Haylie was in her upside down and half tipped (it was caught on some other stuff)  cage looking scared to death... poor thing!  I have no idea how long she was there... =(   After some coaxing I got her to go back down to the floor as I tipped it and got it back in place.  I moved some other cages over so that won't happen again.  The only thing I'm worried about is if the fall will affect her pregnancy at all... I sure hope not.  Just with everything .... moving, new feed, and now this, I hope she doesn't get to stressed.  Anyone out there have any input for me? 

Dolly didn't want to breed AGAIN this morning.  So she's now getting the apple-cider-vinegar-in-her-water-treatment.  :)  If that doesn't work, I think I'll just move her and Comic into a warmer building and hope that does the trick.

If Bella is pregnant than the babies will be showing up today or tomorrow.  I can't wait!  (Have I said that before????)  :)

How far along is Haylie? From my experience they can absorb the fetuses up until day 15 or so and they can abort or have them earlier if they are close to term. She'll probably be just fine(or at least I'm praying that she will be). I have heard of breeders showing does that are 10 days along without any effects on the pregnancy. ((hugs)) Keep us updated.

Thanks so much for the info. I really appreciate it! Haylie is 18 days along. I hope she'll be ok!
And I'm so sorry about you losing your babies. :( But keep on keeping on! :)
