Good luck with the new twins the video looks helpful and I am sure there will be extra advise on here should you have questions. Please share pics as you progress and they grow.

Hi everyone ! The twins are separated and doing well! They are both walking around although one is super tiny.. I have been trying to feed it water blended greens to give him some nutrients.. any advice ? Also just found out the bigger one has a deformity on his back legs where it’s facing outwards? He’s still crawling around the incubator just fine.

Congrats on the twins! Maybe @Yvonne G can help you about the leg. She has rehabilitated many. She might have an idea.

I had the leg problem with a hatchling sulcata. I raised the back portion of the shell to force the legs to stretch to touch the ground. The umbilicus should probably heal first. My tort wasn't as small so I modified a plastic water bottle cap shaped as a wedge so as not too troublesome with substrate and taped it around the body. Good luck.
