 Haha.  Thank ya'lll !!!!!  The first day I saw them there were only 3 next day 7 !!  One was weak and evidently had just hatched (wet) and was just laying there so I thought it was gone. I picked it up and it managed a peep. It was cold though so I gathered it in my hands and gently blew on it with my  mouth wide open and  cuddled it in my hands- brought it in the house and onto the cat heating pad, and clean towel .  ( minus cat) 😉 Got it warm and it started waking up managed with Sis's help to get a mealworm down the hatch. It perked up and that afternoon took it to its mama - Now can't tell the difference.  🙂  I do have one that is "sprattle" legged but getting better. It was left behind that morning too - also weak_ so I brought it in with the cold one and  its walking better... too but  will probably be a juju baby pet  if it keeps growing.

  I put Big Daddy on the other side of the secure cotton trailer and he is separate from them by a hardware cloth door. Was concerned that he might be aggressive  or whop them with that massive tail. 

Our internet has been down for days until noon today,  I could hardly wait to show yall these sweet things.
