    Default How much should my baby squirrel weigh?

    My baby squirrel weighs 3 oz. according to my package scale.
    His eyes are open so I thought he was 5 weeks old.

    Is he underweight?

    Can someone please help me with the 5%-7% feeding calculations?
    One ml is the same as one cc right?

    Thanks in advance, you are all very friendly and helpful!

    Here's a picture of the little bugger. He's not eating the bean, he just likes to hold it and gnaw on the edges, but he's not able to bite any off.

    He looks fine and he is precious!!! 1 mil is the same as 1 cc. I'll try to find that or see if someone can post the 5-7% feeding calculations for you.

    There is not a weight chart that I know of on baby greys because it varies so much. Your baby looks healthy to me.

    1 oz = ~ 28 grams so she weighs 84 grams. 5% is 4.2 cc, 6% is 5 cc, 7% is 5.9 cc.

    Here is a link to a site recommended by this board: squirreltales.org
    You can also go to the bottom of your page and look in all the different forums for babies.
    Squirrels are the easiest animal to fall in love with. They are so sweet and have such warm and comedic personalities.
    I have 8 right now. Enjoy your babies!!

    here is how i make the calculations:

    lets say your squirrel weights 70 grams (grams not ounces). to get 5% or 7% of his body weight you do the following:

    70grams times 0.05= 3.5cc
    70 grams times 0.07= 4.9cc

    "I am the voice of the voiceless:
    Through me, the dumb shall speak;
    Till the deaf world's ear be made to hear
    The cry of the wordless weak."
