(My trio were about 12 to 14 days old, when I decided to ..) help the smallest by giving him some 'quality time' with Momma, whilst I kept the biggest with me, for a few minutes a few times a day. I'd just give Momma a worm (she always liked to take her worm, and sit up on a shelf, away from the nest, to eat it ...), then open the nest box, take the 'big bruiser' out and put her in my breast pocket, then go about some chores close-by (fold laundry, that sort of thing ... or catch up on email ...). I'd not give Momma any more worms, so she'd get back in the box with the remaining two pups. I'd give her and the twosome about ten minutes alone, then replace the large pup. I usually did this three times a day, until I saw that the tiny pup seemed to be fine -- no signs of dehydration, etc. Of course, with pups so small, it's difficult to tell if they're dehydrated, because the skin is so delicate, anyway -- and, at that size, if they were showing signs of dehydration, they'd likely be dead, already, as they're so tiny. After a week of this, I stopped worrying, and stopped intervening; the pups thrived. Good luck, and keep us posted!
