On Monday H and Becky will be on there third week of wind down,Becky has always pooed in bath but for the last few days she has not pooed,H has only done one poo in his bath he does not like to stay in too long so not sure with H, where as Becky loves a good 20 mins,they are in there outside home which the other day fitted a brand new tubular heater and put it on thermostat as we were worried with the other heater as it was tiny and the temps are now very low,last night here it was -4 but with heater it maintained temps around 7c when checked this morning temps were 5c they are still waking up for there five hour lights,monday will be reducing lights to three hours and bathing on the morning and putting them back in while there lights are on,covering there house also with blankets,if they dig down next week when there lights are reduced down to three hours should i turn there lights off and let them go into hibernation,as there weights have been checked weekly and bathed daily,heater is on all the time a the moment with these temps.
Jayne,H,Becky and Humpty
