Leaving 2 jills together while one has kits?

(Nicole Bean) #1

Hi guys,
My jill is ready to give birth imminently and lives in a large two storey with her sister, who isn’t pregnant (or if she is she’s way behind) just wondering if it’s going to be ok to leave them together through birth and nursing egg?.. they’re very close and I’d hate to part them if it wasn’t needed. Will the other jill be a danger to the kits?
Any advice appreciated x

Hi, I would definitely separate them. I know of a Jill who was in with her own daughter, she had a litter and killed all but one kit to ‘protect’ them. It’s easier to protect one kit than a full litter.
Don’t risk the kits.
