:give her energy,once in a while i will sorta force feed her a pinkie but before i do this i load its stomach with a calci/vit supplement.Now it gets gory:do not defrost the pinkie yet,instead take a sharp utility knife and push it into the stomach and wiggle side to side,this creates a cavitity in the stomach-fill this with the supp and then defrost,hole side up.Now if you take the collard in one hand and the pinkie in the other hand,using a finger nail pry open her mouth and gently introduce the pinkie into her mouth(tip:squeeze out some brain onto snout)and with any luck she'll swallow.Hope this helps.
:see yah
