    The first hatchling (7weeks old) next to the newest hatchling (#18) that's one day old. Crazy huh?

    I don't weight them to be honest. If they are growing I just enjoy the growth.
    I hope your female drops soon! It's such exciting stuff

    Hey guys. I figured I would show some updated shots of the original five babies since they are roughly 8-10weeks old now. What's interesting is that the ones exhibiting p.p. Traits grow at a noticeably faster rate than the more babcocki looking babies. Enjoy
