Oh lord, it never rains in this house... it pours.
Our three babies have been seconded to us by their non maternal mother. She wont let the lil blighters latch on! We have Titch clinging on for dear life (he is the smallest and weakest), we have Mo (short for mohican) who is lil scamp and Oodles (rhymes with Doodles becuase she looks like her momma) who is the biggest. We are completely enchanted by these little creatures that Belle has asked if she could cancel going to nannies caravan in Wales. Its a good job really as I rang our Vet for advice and he said that would be irresponsible to leave them behind, so we have carried the cage downstairs into the lounge and its a vigil by the hour.
We are mashing bananas and cucumber to wean them - anyone else have any nursing tips for guineas?
We feel so helpful and Ellie is besotted.
