    Do you have some vitamins in the water? Or maybe sugar water. Just a couple drops as they aspirate easily.

    I had the same thing happen to the JB that I ordered from ideal. Lost 6 of 8 within hours that I recieved them and they died fairly quick. Even recieved a replacement order and one was dead upon delivery and two more followed. I have been told that they are just very delicate and don't do well if they happen to get chilled. As a result of this I know have 24 packing peanuts that came with them.

    You could try putting a drop of water in its mouth with an eyedropper. Trouble is, they aspirate so easily. But it's gonna die anyway without some intake pretty soon....

    Hey Justino-

    I know how horrible it is to have that feeling of fear when you wake up. Try giving her water in a syringe. I hope she gets better and good luck!![​IMG]
