300-1000 of them die in the wild for every one that makes it to adulthood.
We aren't interested in having them barely survive. We want them to thrive. The info you've been given will do that.
Most people do a lot of research beforehand. The problem is that most of the info you find is old, out-dated, and wrong. The same wrong info has been circulating and being taught to new generations for decades. In the early 90s, that is what I was taught, and I spent nearly twenty years teaching it to others. I was wrong, that info is wrong, and the people still repeating it are wrong. It took several decades to figure this all out, but all you have to do is read the care sheet and follow it.
Yes I read the care sheets multiple times and ill make sure to follow all it's instructions.
