She is probably in labour. How long ago did this behaviour start? Give her a half an hour or so and check again. The concern would be a stuck baby but give her a bit more time.

Now that she has started having them, leave her alone. Don't check on them. Leave her quiet so she can settle down to taking care of her new family.

For you to know she killed one, you are too close. I mean it when I say stay out of the room and away from her. She may settle down but she needs quiet. It doesn't matter how quiet you think you are being, she will know you are there.

When you do go in later to quickly feed and water, talk quietly while you are there and tell her what you are doing. Make it FAST.

Firstly congrats on the litter.

I guess she is a first time mom, so expect her to kill some or all of them. It is very common in first time moms. And there is no way you would have known she killed one without been way to close to her to see it. She needs to be left totally alone do not even go into the room. Your risking the babies going in.

I hope she settles down and starts feeding and caring for them all.

Just leave her alone and check in on her in say about 7-8 hours from now. Stick to the normal routine you did for feeding and watering her so she knows what to expect, talk to her as your feeding and watering the rest but do it quietly and quickly do not linger in the room.

Good Luck Connor
