Im handfeeind the smallest bd you have ever seen, aparantly the whole clutch eventually gives up eating, and they die, the person said it was bad genes, occ it does eat by itself but nowhere near enough to grow, it was like a runt of the litter comaprd to the rest of the living clutch.

Im hoping i can keep it going until it maybe goes all good by itself, obiously it wont be used for breeding should it make adult hood.

Whats your thoughts? im not agaisnt killing animals if in pain or distress etc but should i give by new little buddy some human help? Sort of want to make up for losing Boss Hogg a few months ago.
I can take some pics and post them on the animal bin site later if anyone wants to see the little bugger.

It's all a question of personal ethics. Some breeders don't give any assistance to their hatchlings, who doesn't come out of the egg by itself or won't start to eat by itself dies. Because 'in nature they would've died anyway' or because 'their genes are weak, they shouldn't survive'. Others make a slight cut in the egg after 2 days of the first hatch and try to bring them to eat with tricks or forcefeeding, because 'they are living creatures' and 'only a little weaker/smaller than their brothers'. What kind of ethic do you have?

Do you remember how small Harry was after his sister hermione died? He didnt eat for a week or so and then it was only 1 or 2 mealworms a week and 1 or 2 crickets a week. I even went so far as to mush up a mealworm, some orange, babyfood, boiled carrot, milk and vitamin drops into a dog medicine syringe and feed him that once a day along with some water. He didnt eat properly for 12 months then he started 1 day out of the blue and we havent looked back since. I think if he's trying to eat then you should persevere if you can't give me a shout I'd love to help. ;-)

hes alive, hes in my care and its my job to give him the best chance i can, that doesnt cost anything.
I think hes from the same clutch(could bewrong) where i saw some others suddenly flip upside down and freeze.
will do when i get the chance.

Can't be as bad as my hubby and daughters... I like rock music but some of the stuff they listen to is just noise and shouting!
