Me and my dad started doubting that the eggs were fertile as the days were ticked on, but we were proved wrong! I was so scared at first when I saw the eggshells scattered about the cage, thinking Speckles struck again, as she tends to eat eggs and ate one yesterday... But NOPE, I heard little peeps and saw there was babies shuffling about under mama Fluffy! Around 3 or 4 little peepers, and possibly more hatching.
Rex, the father, is super exited over them and keeps picking up the egg shells and trotting about showing them off while doing exited peeps, and Fluffy is keeping the babies nice and warm under herself, and Speckles seems very interested in the babies, helping them back into the nest box when they accidentally get kicked out by Fluffy when she leaves to eat mealworms. I am actually shaking right now which my dad finds hilarious.
They all have dark brown, almost black fuzz on them, so I can tell they aren't silvers, but I am still super exited that I am a grandma to such adorable little fuzzballs! The one I got a good look at even had a little patch on it's chest, like it's father!
I will try and get some pictures of them when I can! I am just super exited and just HAD to post about it when it happened!
