They seem very healthy!!
I will post more pictures tomorrow I am letting them all rest now! I do have one question. How much should they weigh? What is normal just so I can be sure?
At birth, weight should be approx 3-3.4 ounces.
At age 1 week weight should be approx. 4 ounces.
At age 2 weeks, weight should be approx. 7 ounces.
At age 3 weeks, weight should be approx. 10 ounces.
At age 4 weeks weight should be approx. 13 ounces.
At age 5 weeks, weight should be approximately 1 pound.
By the end of the 8th week, kittens should weigh approximately 2.2 pounds.
Of course, all these weights are approximate. You may have a kitten that is slightly under or over these weights and still be perfectly healthy. If ever you have a concern about your kitten, or he just doesn't seem 'right', consult a vet. On the internet there is a pretty extensive kitty calendar you can use. You can access it here.http://www.kitten-rescue.com/bottle_feeding_kitten.html
