Hi Alan,

140g is very tiny! they are usually nearer to 200g weight when mum leaves them to get on with it, and 220g for a 2 year old doesn’t sound very healthy either, did they confirm an age from teeth? sounds like you have done the right thing – but its a difficult decision isn’t it. you never really know if you’ve got them all either when they appear in small ad hoc numbers
rescues are very busy right now with similar circumstances – they need all the help they can get. did they confirm you will get them back for any re-release when ready, assuming they survive of course.
