For today Daisy was nest building. This consisted mainly of snuffling around, picking up mouthfuls of straw and repositioning it. She seemed to be sifting through it too, maybe taking out the spiky bits and any food remnants.
In between, she would lie down and have a rest. Those teats are looking heavy now. They almost reach the floor!
