    Default How old are these babies??

    Hi,

    Two babies fell from a tree in my parents backyard and they arenít sure what to feed them as they are at a pretty odd age. Would they be weaned yet? Both of their eyes are open, theyíre just sleeping in the pic.Name:  BA473877-F955-46F4-BE08-E36038E29B49.jpg

    I think they look 7-8 weeks old. They would still be nursing. I would give them formula... powdered puppy Esbilac with probiotics and prebiotics. It can be purchased at pet retailers. Have they looked for a rehabber?

    This is a link for baby squirrel care.

    When they are this age they are usually pretty squirrelly (scared).
    They would resist formula at first but will LOVE it when they get it figured out. I usually wrap them in fleece to feed and cover the eyes with a corner of the fleece. What they can't see isn't nearly as scary.

    I forgot the obvious... did they try to reunite with mom?

    Itís possible something happened to mom and thatís why they ventured out. I would check for other babies.
