    They are day old I'm guessing? But the EEs have a few tiny wing feathers, so I'm really not sure. I hate mobile BYC, I search something and get a bunch of unrelated posts. I dipped thee beaks in their water (which btw, in any of you have ideas about a home-made waterer I would gladly hear them) I have some awesome glass apple jugs, but the hole is so small (twist top bottle almost), it's hard to find anything it would fit into.

    So it's pretty much normal they are so sleepy?

    I want to do something with them, just not sure what...?

    Here are my babies with the new fluffier, tinier babies :)

    After I tried the paper towel thing (gently! these things are so precious!) I left it alone. If its like a person's it'll fall off on its own.

    Does a 2L plastic bottle cap screw onto that? If so, you could have some super fancy nipple bottle waterers.

    A nipple waterer might work with that...You just drill a hole and shove in the nipple part, fill with water, put cap on, and hang upside down.

    I HATE that drive- seriously dread coming thru north Seattle, over Lake Union anytime after 2:00 on a Friday. I used to cringe when I didn't have a carpool dummy! I really appreciate living over here by Hwy 18.

    We commuted for 2 1/2 years- between Burien/Maple Valley and Tumwater while working on our former house- it was a very, very awful commute from Burien to Tumwater on Friday nights. Bleck!

    DH is gone for 6 days and I'm so bored already. I know I need to go to bed, I only got 4 hours of sleep last night and had a very long day, but I don't want to miss any peeps of distress outside! I know...relax.
