    You have plenty of time to find all info you need. But I will tell you that you will need proper heat, bedding, feed, fresh water and that will keep them healthy. Neosporin, vitamins, electrolytes, and a myriad of other things in case there are issues but most importantly lots and lots and lots of attention and kisses. Now that was for day one.....
