am gradually getting somewhere with weaning - I'm sure some of
them are sneaking food when I'm not there as they have full tummies
and are very heavy. However, Nine is determined not to wean by
herself and just screams at me for food every time I go into
the kitchen - I have to give her a special feed with the syringe
each time - she feels very light and is only gaining weight very
slowly. I don't think she's unwell at all, just determined not
to start eating for herself.
When they're active they're VERY active, and when they sleep
I just want to lie down among them. This afternoon I went to
see them and suddenly realised there were only seven. Short panic
and then Libby showed me that the missing one had found one of
the individual nests.
