The best thing to try and fatten her up is use apricot baby food. Its high in calcium naturally and go ahead and suppliment with minerall. DOnt use Repti-cal or anything like that. The phosforous levels are out of whack. Also get her off of crushed walnut. If you can find some calcium carbonate and keep her on that. She will be able to ingest as much calcium as needed but until then put a baby food lid with calcium suppliments into the cage for her to free range off of. also if she will not take to the baby food you will need to hand feed her. Not force feed but hand feed. Hold her in one hand and take a dab of baby food and put it on her lips. She will lick it off. It may take a few times to get her going but once she does she will fatten up quick. Also baby food will fill her up quicker then crix or mealies so dont freak out when she gets fat in the belly. She will be ok.

If you will be going to the meeting this weekend look me up Ill be the only whacko witht he tattos and eye brow piercing(dont let that scare you haha) or if you want to email me leave your email addy and Ill get back to you....

Good Luck
