Clara's First Litter....

They finally arrived! Clara, our New Zealand White, had her first litter of babies today! We haven't been overly invasive to count them, but I did peek and held my cellphone over the nesting box to take this picture while mom was eating a little treat of romain lettuce! So far, I count 5! It is amazing to me that this is day 1 and they are totally pink....  within a week they'll be white (notice the white hair around them) and by day 10 they'll have their eyes open and they'll be scooting all around the box! :)
