straw is better in the first few days because they have a harder time holding their heads up. So laying there head in shavings would be bad when they inhaled the shavings and dust. So straw is always reccomended for like the first 2 weeks.

I know that straw is better.

I just asked that because I know how much shavings keeps the whites clean on my show dogs.

For a minute I was confused. I could of swore I clicked on a different thread, so I was going "I missed another baby!".... So I started going back a few pages and then I realized I was on my own thread.. Lmao.

I found out today that Phoenix loves human attention. He also is fed up with his mom pushing him away when he is getting the attention so he is becoming a rebel. Has some new found freedom. I went out there today and called him and he came bouncing right up to me. Sat there and let me scratch all over him. Though Lena wasn't exactly happy. Sat back a few feet with her ears pinned and her head low. He kept his back to her the whole time and kept wanting the scratches. Though I must give her credit for being a good mom. Today is the first night I left open the run doors so she can go out to the paddock over night. Though she is still in the barn with him. Also Lena for the first time made contact with my skin in biting and she got a good pop, learned her lesson real quick.

I'm thinking since Lena is no longer pregnant, this thread is a little outdated. Going to start a new thread for updates of him alone. As he gets older there won't be a much of them.
