The babies graduated to a bigger "kritter keeper" today.
This is huge compared to the one they were in, and yet they still seem to fill it out. I kept them in the small one as long as I did to help ensure that they would keep their legs under them and not splay them out to the sides.
The picture below was also taken today and shows them in their new home as viewed with the top of the brooder off:
Looking more like greys all the time, aren't they?
