>>sonya today i went to check on one of my prego rat she has been huge for a while she had a few still borns and when i went to pick her up she was bloodied heavy from giving birth she is still really huge whats up with that? im having zero luck with my small rat colony lately i was really hoping to see there pups so i can raise a new colony and now looks like im getting dead pups! she looks like shes in pain too dont know what to do? any advice? thanks again.


She likely has more pups to deliver.
Best you can do is let her be and see if she can finish. Some HUGE moms have massive litters, hemorrhage and only some live or not. You just never know.
