URGENT Hand Feeding

2134 Views 17 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  SarahC
I need some urgent advice on hand feeding babies;

~ What's the youngest you've successfully hand reared?
~ What temperature do they need to be at?
~ What did you feed them/how often/how?
~ How did you get them to poop/how often?

I have three of a vital litter left but they're tiny. I'm not holding out much hope.

I've handfed a rat baby.
She had her mother so I didn't need to wipe her after feeding. Her mother didn't have milk.
I justed milk for kiddens.
My vet had these. I think they are ment for hedgehogs babies.

I just put it on a syringe (?) (with out a needle ofcourse) and it worked great.

Mice babies are smaller then rat babies so I don't know if it will work, but you can try.
Just an idea :)
