Has anyone else seen this happen?

I have an albino female that dropped a litter on 2/14 (within a day or so), and again at the end of last month. 15 the first time, 14 the second time. The second litter weren't as big phyisically as I'm used to, but not too small by any means.

The second litter was a complete surprise. Came back from vacation to find babies running around. There were 4 females in that cage, and the albino was the only one to drop weight. Plus 2 of the others had dropped litters with 60 days prior to this one. The remaining female showed no weight loss whatsoever and she hadn't been exposed to a male this year. The litter was just about to begin their first shed when I found them. No one "looked" pregnant, although the albino wasn't eating as well as she should have prior to the birth.

Any thoughts? Definately not what I wanted to happen. Didn't think it was possible really.
