I mean salad days quite literally, in fact...
|Acer is understandably ravenous with 13 mouths to feed!|
It makes me happier too, since I get to save a little money on pellets. Their daily helping of wild salad usually has them back to a 1/4 - 1/2 cup per day, rather than their usual 1-1 1/2 cups.
Today's selection includes grasses, sour dock, yellow dock, dandelions, clover, violet leaves, cleavers, chickweed, wild geranium, blackberry leaves and Multiflora rose leaves.
So, still no babies from Babs, yet. Although she has been haystaching like crazy, since yesterday morning.
|That wild look in her eye says it all|
This morning she had pulled fur everywhere and made a nice little nest in the corner of her cage, and was sitting there in it like "Okay.... so now what do I do?"
I picked her nest up, stuffed it in the box and put the box in her spot, hoping she will get the idea. I did actually see her hop into it for the first time, so we'll see.
Oh, here is what "the salad days" is from. I couldn't find the actual scene, but this is close enough.
I'll keep you posted on Babette's litter.
Enjoy this fine Spring day, my friends!
