    Just an update and a few questions! I posted a couple videos of Bean (black) and Clydell (gray) enjoying their new cage and enrichment! Let me know how you think they're progressing! Clydell is 7 weeks now and Bean is estimated to be around 8-9 weeks. Both are eating 3-4x per day FV 20/50. They have Henry's and mazuri blocks to try and I've given them spring mix, broccoli (beans favorite so far) and a few match stick carrots. They mostly just chew on things but don't seem to really eat much solid foods yet. I may back down to 3x per day or less food, as they don't seem to be emptying as well. Tummies are still soft but rounded. I have cleaned fresh wood in the cage, a water bottle that they haven't tried yet, loose twigs, some leaves and maple helicopters, and a few clean rocks. I plan to make more climbing things, hammocks, etc, but they aren't too confident in their climbing skills yet.

    After feeding grooming and play this morning:

    Questions..
    Bean's belly looks a little pink under her fur, but I don't see any bumps or anything. Their cage is cleaned fully every other day and I used free and clear detergent and hot water on their laundry. I check their skin and fur at least once daily. What could be the issue with her pink tummy? Bean's tummy after dinner: https://photos.app.goo.gl/G7tq7nv8xccccL3G8

    Should they be going potty on their own all the time? I still stimulate every feeding and they go pee every time, poops most times.

    Clydell doesn't really latch onto the miracle nipple anymore and just gets formula all over himself. I've tried going slow, a little faster, changed angles of the syringe, angles of his body. Is he just really messy? I'll try to get a good video.. any input from the pros is greatly appreciated!

    Look at Clydells teeth. Make sure the bottom teeth are not too long.

    Hi all! Clyde (9 weeks) and Bean (12ish weeks?) are doing good. Still drinking formula but eating blocks, veggies and I've seen Bean drink out of the water bottle. Bean is has been using their litter box most of the time but I'm concerned about Clyde.. I feel like he still needs me to stimulate him every feeding (3x/ day) and it seems like a lot of pee and poops happen every time. He's 9 weeks.. shouldn't he be going potty on his own?

    It's easier just to share my public Instagram for updated photos and videos here: https://www.instagram.com/sossamii/
