    well you need to keep them warm under a heat lamp for at least 8 weeks, if your climate is cold, maybe 14 weeks at a low heater temp..


    When they get to 14 weeks, put them in a large cage in with the big girls so they can see, not touch.

    I think you let them out for short supervised runs after 1-2 weeks in the big cage.
