my friends baby red foot is about 6 months old. It started getting soft on the belly at first and she was advised to saok it less and feed it more calcium. She added a soak bowl and stopped the manual baths but I don't know what changes she has made in the food. Now it is getting soft on the sides too. I reminded her that it needs calcium and calcium rich foods. I think she feeds it repcal pellets sometimes and greens and pumpkin but said it won't eat hay or grass. Any advice I can give her before this little guy gets real sick? Thanks!
