leo hatchling weight gain
 
Just wondered how fast other peoples leo hatchlings gain weight. The reason i ask is because i have a baby that is 4 weeks old today or tomorrow and it is up to 14 grams from a 3 gram hatch weight. From my own experiences this seems quite remarkable as i usually find the majority of my hatchlings don't starting gaining any significant weight until 2 - 3 weeks old.

that's a good weight gain and one I find is usual with most of mine ~ they gain between 10g-15g a month on average with some gaining more : victory:
