Your welcome, i do have some new photos to put up of 5 baby field mice I got, unfortunately they didn't make it, mice are hard and it was my first time doing them, but i got really cute photos!

Thank you but i do have to say i feel like a fool because i really did think they were chipmunks because of the black stripes on its belly but they are red squirrels and they are doing great!
