    Isn't it funny how all babies look so cute. Hippo's or mice or bunnies....they are all so very very cute.

    I always loved to watch when babies were born. Guinea pigs come along hopping and jumping fully clothed looking and acting just like mama. That makes them very very cute too even missing the nude baby look.

    :-D

    I was amazed to see her hop on over and nurse the babies as I went to check on them this afternoon.

    told ya so. Did no one believe me. I am crushed. They do look like hippos. I would have never guessed it if I hadn't seen it for myself. I am also amazed at how heavy they are.

    Cheryl, I am laughing as I sit here this morning, I went to show caity the new pictures and as I was reading your post I noticed...you said rhinos and knew exactly what you meant....as I was reading it.

    This lil piggie went to the market, like his grandma. Another little piggie stayed home with the hubby and the next one ate the whole garden in one day.

    :D :D :D :D

    Barb, I picked one up today and you are right...piggies. It was unbelievably heavy for its size. But I don't think they will be eating the garden, I will give them away if I can, otherwise I will have to find more hutches. Oh, bother. These 3 were hard to come by as it was. I looked on craigs list for quite some time before I found these and fortunately they were just up the road from me.

    Philip, they are all black at this point and I assume they will stay that color, but what do I know, I am on here asking all of you for help?

    They may look like little piglets but I still think they're too cute for comfort. :D

    My daughter informed me that two of the bunnies are brown...I went to look and they are all different. One is still teeny tiny..I am thinking it will not survive most likely and I counted 8. But, I really don't know how many there are or what colors they account for, but they are starting to get cute. One looked like its eyes were starting to open.

    Eight so far Carolyn,..oh boy!,..you will need a lot of new homes for them,..on the other hand you could sell them at the Farmers Market,..those bunnies fetch a good price.

    Philip, I don't think I can sell them at a market, but I really haven't seen anyone try/do that before around here. there may be regulations about it, but my last market for the year is in a church tomorrow morning and they won't be ready for that (nor would I be allowed to take them inside there, I am sure). Next year my markets don't start until May.
