Oh my goodness. Look at their little ears and paws! I could just die from this amount of cute!
Haha I know! their little paws are adorable, and 2 of them have the sweetest little floppy ears, and the other's ears stick up! Haha I can't wait to see wether they are boys or girls and I'm crossing my fingers we have 2 boys and 1 girl. That way all would be well for cagemates!

They really look pretty big for newborns. It's hard to believe all of them fit inside Charlie at once. Any clue yet on their gender?
No, I'm going to check here in a couple hours and see if I can tell yet ;) hoping for 2 boys one girl...

Aww! So cute! I looked at this thread today and saw there were a bunch of posts, and I was just hoping the babies had been born! They're so adorable. I think three is the perfect number.

Well, I knew it was going to be soon, because her pelvic bone had begun to seperate last week, and had been at 2 fingers width for 3 days. Her genital area was swollen, and the day before, I saw her tugging the fleece and re-arranging it. She would sniff the floor, and go in circles, checking and re-checking. Plus she was constantly eating pellets, sleeping, eating way more than usual, even for being pregnant.

Also, she avoided fruit all the way up until the last day. She ate 2 table spoons of banana. That told me she must have been needing sugar, and her body was going through the blood sugar drop at the end of pregnancy. I noticed she wanted sugar and anything high in calcium, and also she ate poo almost non stop the last two days.

I got there just after the last baby was born, and had just checked on her the hour before. So I did not see the contractions or actual birth, but I know it was very short because I checked on her b4 I started an episode of desperate housewives, and they were born when I got up to check before it was even over..:)

I just checked their genders again today and I am 90 percent sure the smooth hair is a male, as well as the brown one, and that the black and caramel abyssinian is a female. In a bit I will post pics and see what everyone else's opnions are. They are quite squirmy so its hard to check! LOL

Sounds like you got what you wanted!! I know they can be super squirmy... It might help to have one person look while the other checks the gender. I would be sure to double check when they're 2.5 or so weeks just to be sure. Keep in mind that some girls have a bump that can look like the protrusion a penis would typically come out of (I have a girl with a bump, originally thought she was a boy, luckily had her re-sexed before she had a chance to get pregnant). Again, your piggies are so adorable! Lucky piggy "grandma" :)

I've been gone for a few days with limited internet, but I saw the pics when you first posted them and now I finally have a chance to post. They are so adorable! I hope you're right on the genders so it all works out like you were hoping. I'm sure Charlie is glad that it's all over with...that was a lot of baby to carry.

Yeah I'm going to check again, I have also noticed that with young boys you can feel a tube like thing just above the area where the penis pops out...I'm guessig its the penis under the skin...LOL

UPDATE: All three babies are healthy and happy, and yesterday was the day to seperate them. I built a stacked 3 grid by 2 grid cage using cubes for a base. Mom and poppy are on top, and chip and percy are on bottom. BTW we decided chip was officially "buffalo chip" haha because so many friends said he looked like a mini buffalo. :) We have plans to build a permanent hutch this summer! Also, Chip and Percy are 100 percent boys and Poppy is 100 percent a girl...couldn't have turned out better!
