So I have started giving it to the parents in their water. Wasn't really sure how much to give but I feel a couple drops is OK, its the liquid form. I know I won't see results overnight, but Bubbles biggest baby was doing good already, the veins seemed to have lessened on his crop, same with Squiggles babies too (her smallest is fiesty.) So I'm hoping this will help. Bubbles only baby now (lost the younger one in the night, I'm assuming I didn't get the extract in time for him) is already getting pin feathers in on his wings and he a week old today. None of Snowball's babies ever really got any (even the one that almost made it to two weeks old) and I'm assuming that would have to do with them not getting enough nutrients. Seems to me that Bubbles and Fuzzy feed way more than Snowball and Hershey did. Anyways, I digress, hopefully this works!
