Three Blind Mice

We have Chic-lets! Sometime in the early hours of this morning, Hippie Chick gave birth to three beautiful little babies. By the time I got up and checked on her, all babies were clean, warm and dry; the afterbirths had disappeared and the bubs were feeding happily. Mum and babies all well so far. I'll take photos soon.
At this stage I think it's two boys and a girl. It's very difficult to tell unless you get to them within an hour or so of birth. Up until then the boy's testes are slightly swollen due to the female hormones still circulating in their blood, but once the swelling goes down I really have a hard time sexing them accurately.
Now just waiting for Rhapsody's Angel to have her kids.
