I do believe it's a male, bummer. I am already tuckered out, it's like caring for a newborn human!
Nope, they can't go to the bathroom on their own. You have to prompt them like a dog or cat would, pretty gross but at least I can keep it in the living room a bit longer without having to trek out to the barn 4 times a night!
When I got him here that was the first thing I did, they will die of toxic shock if you don't get them cleaned out.
He's going to have to be bottlefed until at least 12 weeks old, probably longer.
Right now he has to be fed about 1/2 a cup of milk every 3 to 4 hours, about 7 times a day, that's for the NEXT TWO WEEKS! Then I can back it down a bit.
He's doing GREAT! Little messy during feeding time, wobbly, but appears to be healthy and curious which is good. Fingers crossed! My daughter is at her Mimi's this weekend so I have another day of him all to myself, get him on a schedule, and make sure he's going to live before she knows. Cool surprise huh! I'll give her the night shifts! Just kidding!
Any name suggestions? Something cool, not cartoonish.
I was thinking Pan or Puck, my DH suggested "RX7326 Specimen #1" LOL!!
