I don't have decent pictures of everyone unfortunately as there are a couple of new mice that just don't sit still.
First off, the ferrets, Thatcher and Bode. Thatcher has been diagnosed with lymphoma, although an infection is still being explored, and we are hoping for a lot more time with him. He is under a year and Bode will be two in December.
Teshi, a lovebird I got after loosing my last starling. He is my first parrot and I am enjoying him a lot, he is very different than my starlings have been.
(The cage behind him is a hospital tank, it housed an ill baby mouse for a few days)
My two rat boys and my little doe, who will be spayed at some point so she can be with the two boys. Louis and Mendel are brothers, rescued from the humane society and Marlena is a feeder rescue.
The mice. I have 2 bucks and 4 does. Some don't have good photos yet but might as well give their stories anyway.
Dove buck (Unnamed) was a hopper who I rescued and hand fed.
Black doe (Unnamed) The buck's sister, also hand raised.
Hairless doe (Unnamed) Recent addition, still getting some formula for 3 more days.
Isolde, agouti doe. She is half wild and a feeder tank mouse as well. She is camera shy.
Emera, longhaired mock chocolate doe-
Augustus, agouti buck, feeder tank rescue who was pretty badly injured by the other males when I pulled him last year.
I do rodent Christmas photos and that was one of his last year, he's a ham.
Also in my rodent room are a black widow spider and an orb weaver, a pacific chorus frog, and a robo hamster named Mischa who is very very shy (Rescue from humane society and was never socialized before coming here..we leave her to her own devices pretty much since she is so easily stressed).
My birds- 5 chickens of varying histories.
Rex, EE rooster, so aggressive I am the only one who will enter his pen. He weighs in at around 8 pounds we think. Kept with one hen of his own as my smaller birds are too easily injured by such a large male.
Melonie, Rex's lady friend, a rhode island red who is a year and a half old.
(This was taken when Rex was first brought to me and still growing, the first time they got along.)
Sarah, a black frizzled cochin hen. Sweet and sassy, I adore her.
The chickens do sometimes come inside- that is one of my two cats behind her, he likes the chickens.
Violet, a blue cochin hen, she's nothing but sweet and loves to cuddle on a lap.
