My first clutch of beardies hatched about 2 weeks ago and all of them are doing great except 3 smaller ones who are very lethargic. One will occasionally chase food but not much and the other two sleep all day long. They do lap the water up when misted but that is it. I am starting to get really worried. I have tried to put those 3 in a seperate place to eat food, but when picked up they just assume the sleeping position on my finger and the same when I set them down. I mashed up a bit of apple and put it on their nose to see if they would lick it off but no luck. When they do get up and walk (which is rare) they are clumsier than the rest who are running and jumping around no problem. The rest of the babies are growing fast, alert, active and super cute! Is this normal to have a couple that are slower? Suggestions? Thank you.
