I have 20 nannies and the first two have given birth very early. Twins that are still pink and hairless. Looks like they are 3 to 4 weeks early. Is this a dietary problem (wrong type of hay...), a parasite problem or is a vitamin and mineral deficiency. They all appear to be healthy and I dont see signs of worms. Kept the last fetus to take to the vet on Monday.
Looking to others with experience for advice.

This does sound very much like Chlamydia. This disease is very difficult to culture from a fetus so, even if the lab doesn't find it. That doesn't mean that is not there. I would get the remaining pregnant does put on CTC or Aureomycin pellets to try and prevent anymore abortions.
There are people on here who have dealt with this on a large scale...Hopefully one of them will drop in.
