Hey Rodger, sorry to hear the kids are sick. I saw you said they are too young to already have vit defiencies. But you can not just assume it's them that JUST got deficient. You have to look back and maybe assume mom was decient or lacking something, and that the kids may not have gotten what they needed. Sometimes the eggs/ hatchlings zap everything from her but if she is also lacking then EVERYONE IS DEFICIENT.

I know from having a human baby many years ago.... breech and he had seizures for a few days after birth, where he would get stiff so stiff the dr. said they could not bend his arm while it was happeneing. Anyway turned out it wa not from being breech they found he hardly had a calcium level it was so low,,,, my fault as I'm not a milk drinker and back then they did not push vitimims or calcium supplements. When they got my sons calcium levels up he was fine.


If I were you besides the D3 I would give them "liquid calcium" a few drops 3 times a day for about a week, then maybe 2 drops a day another week see how they do after that and go from there, just give you an idea if this may be the problem. They are so tiny so you would have to get that liquid WAY back of the throat past the glotis/hole in the back of tongue, or you cna asperate them, gets into the lungs.


I hope they come around.
