I have a 9 year old KSB female that drops small litters almost every year now and this year she dropped 6 babies on 6/3/2010, and just last week I noticed her looking about to drop again. One night last week she passed 2 fully formed babies with some yolk sacs still intact that were dead upon passing them. This got me wondering.

Yesterday she started to pass another one, tail first. It was obvious though this one wasn't live due to the tail being dried out, almost like she had been trying to pass it for a while. Once it was passed, it was not live, but it was a fully formed baby that probably was live prior to being passed. This is only 3 months after her last litter, and there is obviously more in her. What's everyone's opinions on this? Is it common for two clutches that close together? I know it is not "healthy" for her, but she hasn't even been with a male since the first breeding.

This is her yesterday prior to passing the dead baby.
