    Yeah we will getting one in a weeks time and then this little one when it's ready. We wanted 2 from the same litter but she only had one buck left. Any tips on bonding a 12 week old and 8 week old? This is the buck

    They're both adorable! You won't be able to bond them until they're both 6 months and neutered though. Babies can appear to bond quickly at 8-12 weeks old, it then entirely falls apart when the hormones kick in a few weeks later. It's not worth that risk. There isn't a 100% guarantee they'll get on either, bonding is a tricky process of matching their personalities, which will change as they turn from babies to teenagers to adults.

    As for the youngest one's colour, will be hard to tell for sure at that age. Maybe opal or a lilac otter?
