This is the mix I make for my cresties...other people do it differently you'll have to experament and see what works for you.

4 large jars peach or apricot babyfood
1 small jar sweet potato baby food
1 large jar hiawian (sp?) delight baby food
1 small jar either beef, chicken, pork, veal or lamb baby food thined in enough water to make it runny
1 spoonful of calcium powder
1 spoonful of vitamin powder
mix and freeze in small icecube tray (one ice cube is enough for 3 cresties at one feeding)

you can also add mashed insects and different types of fruit baby food, I've also heard of people adding honey and yogurt.

As to the difference in males and females my male is smaller then my females (42 grams as compaired to my 52 gram females) I may just have big females or may have a little male, I wouldn't worry about Abby's growth too much unless she's not eating or not gaining at a steady rate (say one half to one gram a week or so) or unless she starts to loose weight.

Hope this helps!

Tegan
