    may little ones are I'm guessing 2 or 3 weeks old I read somewhere you should introduce them to water until you see that they are producing oil in their glands. I hav't seen that yet. I was thinking of getting out our little kiddy pool and letting them have a swim but don't want them to drown. I thought it might be a good bonding time too [​IMG] Crystal
