Thank you so much for taking the time to make these videos. I will be saving these videos for future reference. You have the perfect set up and I see why you have such success.

Thanks again for taking the time to share. I will be going to Harbor Freight today!

Yay! Now you can make your very own "baby table"! \:D/ I look forward to seeing a picture of your new set-up!


Glad to help. :D Let me know if I need to make anymore troubleshooting videos on things I may have missed.

I'm going to make this thread a 'Sticky', so it will always be at the top of the Breeding forum. There are some really good tips here, and videos always make learning/visualizing easier for me.

Aww! Thanks Jen. Thank Elana, Sally and Debbie, lovezebs Elana gave me the courage to handfeed many moons ago. Sally gave me the ideas for the tools . Debbie Showed us all with her pictures that it can be done!

I just put all 3 of these gals together, and stirred them into my formula. Metaphorically speaking. So much to learn from this site! :YMHUG:

Turns out I didn't have to do it! The parents started feeding again and the babies are fledged and healthy now!
