They gained 1-2 grams each since yesterday (another reference back to the crazy 😆 yes I weighed them yesterday (24 grams, 28 and 38). I have to work the next few 4 nights so I am having my 8 year old help. The biggest one is totally fine, younger two are starting to bear weight on their feet in a normal stance and I was able to remove the vet tape off their crooked toes yesterday. I can't upload pics 😁 but I'll go take a new video right now
I still have them on carpet (everything else too hard for them) and threw parrot food and bread crumbs all over the bottom of brooder. They like the millet. So much WORK! 😳 Vid to come in about 20 mins (slow DSL Internet)... stay tuned
I love the way you have fallen back on your training ... weighing them
They must feel better with their toes free .........
Too funny how you can figure how to take and then upload a video to youtube - but cant get a pic in here
I would have a think about the flooring .... the seed might be a bit uncomfie under foot .... give them some space where there is no seed, maybe ?
Also I would have a think about just using a towel, leave it NOT flat so it has some small snake-like rises. This will help them balance, they can lean on the thicker snake-like lumps.
You and your son are doing an amazing job.
I have 3 little ones, who are just on 3 weeks of age at the moment that live on my dining table (of a night) and out in a wire-run of a day .... Ill try and get some videos of them today.
