So I got them all out and made notes and weighed them... this is what I have.
1. Gray tiger F 6 oz
2. Gray tiger M 6.5 oz
3. Gray tiger M 6.5 oz
4. Blk/brown tiger - runt - M 3.5 oz
5. Brown tiger - M 5.5 oz
6. Black tabby - F 6.5 oz
7 Gray tiger F 6.5 oz.
So I have four gray tiger kittens, two boys two girls. It looks like I have two sets of twins.. but we'll see how it goes as they grow up. I will be able to tell the other three apart very easily but that's not saying much. At this point I'm not all that concerned with anyone but the very smallest one so I don't feel the need to weight them with any regularity nor distinguish between the gray kittens. If I can't tell the Grays apart when they start developing personalities (when I generally name them unless I end up going with the "dwarf" theme) I'll figure out something to tell them apart... collars or something..
The littlest boy is so very scrappy.. its wonderful. I'm actually surprised he is alive being half the size of his siblings but he is determined. I once read that it is very possible for eggs to be fertilized at different times so 'runts' can be developmentally different than siblings. Since all of his siblings have at least one eye fully open and a second almost open and his eyes are still sealed shut, I'm guessing this is the case in his point. He is putting on 0.01 KG (or according to google 10 grams) every day, which is great. I have been supplementing him twice a day to make sure he gets a few extra calories with out having to work for them. Last night I got 10g of food in him which was 1/10th of his body weight. Pretty impressive when you think of it. If you weigh 150 lbs, then it would be like you eating 15lbs of food..
