    I got this idea from Akai Chan, hopefully she won't mind :)

    I paired up my Pied Golden Agouti boy (Cookie) with my Golden Agouti girl (Sapphire).

    They were successfully paired up together in the morning on the 4.08.09.
    No matings yet as far as i'm aware, although i'm keeping close watch :)

    This will be Cookie and Sapphires first litter. I'm def expecting Golden Agouti in the litter, with the slight possibility of Grey Agouti, Golden Argente or Red eyed honey cream.
    And half of the litter will be spotted/pied :)

    No wait gain yet (that's visable anyway). But i havn't seen them mate again so there's a chance that Sapphire is pregnant :D
    It's only been about 9-10 days since the mating though so i'm going to be waiting at least another week before i notice any weight gain :)

    On different news. I've paired up another pair.

    Morris, my red eyed schimmel male is with Temperance my spotted golden argente girl.
    I'm really looking forward to the outcome of this litter :D
    They were paired up as off last Thursday, no matings as of yet.

    I'm looking forward to following this!!!!! I'd love to breed for myself, but I don't have the time, or the space to do it!

    Here's a picture of the female. Only slight weight gain, so just keeping an eye on her :D
