    I need advice on feeding her. I don't know if shes old enough for me to feed her once a day. Can someone help me?[​IMG][​IMG]

    at 4 weeks I'd leave food and water out at least during the day light hours. is she in the house?

    Oh, yes, I would have water and food with her 24/7.

    What's the scoop?

    How much do you give her at a time? Just wondering how you work that out. I have heard of this method, just don't know how to know how much feed to offer.
