Black and blue and growing all over!

Fifi's babies are getting bigger!

They are making little forays out into the run. Fifi has decided to share the mothering with Shorty, who is confined to her nest. Periodically the babies go huddle up next to Shorty and Fifi goes out to do her own thing. Built in babysitter, I guess.
Shorty's babies are due in about a week. It'll be interesting to see what happens when there are new babies in there with Shorty.

Fifi is a somewhat ambivalent mom. Sometimes she is a velociraptor and other times she ignores them. She is more than happy to leave them with Shorty the broody babysitter.
I am quite proud of them though. They are going to be real beauties! Can't wait to watch them feather out.
