    Custom Design is one of my Texel guinea pigs, the night before last I discovered my water lines were jammed and everyone was out of water. I got the water lines going again and everyone is doing great, except Custom I am not sure if he is more sensitive or being up in the top cage he was out of water for a little longer.

    He is my baby he was born to my black male and agouti/white female I was hoping for a solid colorerd agouti and there he was just as perfect as if I had ordered him. I have since tried for more babies from the same pair only got TSW(black/red/wht).

    Right now he is just weak, I have him on lactated ringers 3 times a day and he is getting some baby food and critical care and some Vit. C and B complex for a boost. I just hope he pulls through.

    Sounds like you're doing everything possible to do for him. I'll be pulling for him.

    He acts slightly better this afternoon, not nearly as lethargic. I put him back out with his girlfriend for the day while its warm so he is comfortable but he will come back inside my room for the night tonight so I can make sure he is warm. Crossing my fingers he is feeling much better....
