Question Are their sizes okay?!

I don't mean to be a bother on the forums... But Yue's runty passed away yesterday at 4 weeks old and it's got me quite neurotic about the other two.

Both are strong and fluffy at 4 weeks and a little bit, and they're starting to chow out of mommy's food bowl (and anointing with the food. Whatcha gonna do?), but I'm not sure what exactly their sizes should be at this age. To me they look quite big and well developed compared to runty's size. They move around and love to explore.

I've attached a picture taken yesterday, showing their sizes compared to mommy. They're both the same size, give or take.

Some reassurance would mean the world to me until I get a scale to weigh them.

Thank you!

They look like pretty average 4 week old hoglets.
Sorry to hear about your loss.

They look like they're a heathy size for their age. It's very possible the runt had some genetic defect that is responsible for its death.
