Hello everyone,
This morning i gave him a fresh salad. After he ate some, he did this yawn but sounded like a cracking jaw or creaking door sound. Has only done this once this first morning. Should i be concerned?

I wouldn't worry unless he keeps doing it or he black beards, stops eating, etc. Their joints can crack occasionally too, just like ours, and your guy is very healthy and has no risk of developing MBD at all, so it was probably just his jaw or neck cracking, or just a random sound from his mouth. If it continues then maybe an x-ray is a good idea, but I doubt it's anything, your setup is excellent and he's a healthy little guy!
