Apple Jane's broken chinchilla kit Pretzel has been struggling to gain weight, so we started supplemental feeding him/her about three weeks ago. The wee one finally weighs 28 grams, while the other bunny in the same litter is a whopping 83 grams and is nearly as big as their mama. Little Pretzel is still of unknown gender as the bunny bits down there are too small for my bifocal contacts and reading glasses (combined) to see the important details. Hopefully another week or two of growth will reveal that information.
Anyhow, Pretzel has always tried to sit up or stand up while we fed him/her, so we finally found a bowl small enough to fit the bunny and the goat's milk. I couldn't resist taking a short video of the cuteness. :)
