Hi Graham,

You are obviously doing a good job so I wouldn’t worry too much at the moment, as long as you are feeding them a high protein diet they should soon pile the weight on.

Here is the BHPS advice:

Being kept in captivity for months at a time can be very stressful, so it is important that they are not taken from the wild unnecessarily.
