I had to stop the wind down of my two babies just before Xmas due to a small issue one one of them and which was completely and quickly resolved thanks to the precious advice of Sue.

I am still unsure whether I will restart the wind down at the end of January.

If I overwinter them, should the weight of the babies be stable as they would naturally not gain in the winter if they were hibernating, and therefore should I feed them just enough to keep weight stable or weight gain to the minimum?

Thank you
