Wow! they are absolutely gorgeous! Misty had a litter of three, six days ago and i found the Whiskas website really good it tells you how much they should weigh and what they get upto each week as they grow. But as long as they are gaining weight im sure they will be just fine best of luck for you and your babies, sadie x

you could always call the vet just to be on the safe side i know my vet told me not to weigh them as they didnt feel the need for it. do they seem ok to you are they feeding ok?

Those are some big kittens! Wow! They sounds all nice and healthy- it's a good thing that they're a little robust at that age- means they're eating well...I would only worry if they start to loose weight. Sounds like you're doing a wonderful job with them. Here is a link to www.kitten-rescue.com they have a chart for the average weight and feedings of kittens. It's very helpful. Feel free to pm me if you need any more help
