    Okay, had to get the pharmacist to order them yesertday and they came in...I ordered them without Iron....

    How much do I give my little Miracle and how often. She is 4 days old.

    I thought I read somewhere on her previously 1 drop a couple times a day. But I want to know for sure.

    If I remember, it's 3 drops in the beak once or twice a day. Diana! Where are you?

    EDITED TO ADD: I checked and it's 3 drops once a day for a week.

    That sounds familiar Cyn. Isn't she the cutest? She is eating her starter out of spoon when I get it nice and soupy with water. She is eating a little every 30 - 60 minutes and then sleeping again. She is trying bless her heart. I am hoping the vitamins will help. [​IMG]


    EDIT: got it Cyn thanks so much! Off to give it to her and feed her again.

    She is soooooooo tiny. I am putting the vitamins in the side of her beak slowly...I am so afraid of hurting her or doing it wrong to open her beak. She is taking them like a champ....so [​IMG]
