    I gave the new babies watermelon last night. The whole family even my wifes parents and brother in China were watching the private youtube live stream I have for them all.

    Late last night when he should have been sleeping, my nephew sends me a video. I guess he named his duck. DJ Duck Step...

    Kids are amazing, he was all bummed out earlier this week because school was back in session, now I just have to get him to stop watching the live stream.

    Here is his video of my new babies getting their first watermelon...no one told me what to expect. It is not my kind of music, so my apologies in advance! lol :wee

    Just try not to over do on the treats. I know it's hard not to spoil them but they need their feed first. Also when feeding other things besides their feed [starter] they need grit so make sure to have some available for them. Don't put it in their feed though offer in a separate bowl or sprinkle on the bottom of brooder.

    Thank you so much, I am offering it free now and I still sprinkle a it in their dry, but just a bit and they barely eat dry anymore anyways.

    Their most preferred way so far of eating their food is for me to trough the mash and put water in it. They muddle and consume it all, and I have to keep it full. I only treat them once a night when everyone can view.

    Tonight is swim party. If y'all think they are ready.

    I really need advice. lol.

    Of course they are ready as long as you keep the room toasty warm and the water and let them play for short periods to start with. to start let them be able to stand then you can gradually give them water to dive and swim in.

    Hope your going to share. :pop
