Is this a normal position

Postby DiXX » Wed Apr 17, 2019 12:34 am

I know i worry too much. But she often sits like she is in picture below. And she ran through her Viv then stopped in that position, I’m just worried she has a problem with her legs , hips or stomach thanks guys. [Click image to enlarge]

Hi
Thank You. With her refusing to eat very much I worry she is ill. I guess she eats what she needs.

Keep an eye on her weight--- how often is she eating? Or exactly what is she eating?

Keep offering the vegies --- sometimes you haft to offer a variety of greens - what exactly are you offering ? She should start eating vegies as shes getting more towards a year now -- their main diet for the first year is bugs for the protein and then as they turn a year and older it should switch to vegies mainly and less bugs to once or twice a week ---

She has cabbage,carrot Lollo rocha bok Choy butternut squash. Occasional spinach and kale fruits sparingly like blueberries apple strawberry, do you think I should only feed insects every other day to encourage veg eating or carry on even if it’s just 1 or 2 in the evening ?

Yes I would try that -- feed her the vegies in the morning --- first feeding --- but cut back on the bugs--
