How long should it take for our two 3yo hermanns to produce stalls ?They are both eating well and we are bathing them twice a day. they have both weed and produced urates.

should we be concerned ?

Many thanks for any advice

Are these the two that came out of hibernation at the end of Jan? If so I'd give it a little longer. It may even be that they're going in their housing and trudging it in. I wouldn't alter their feeding to make them go either. Remember they have been without food for a while, their bodies are  utilising every little nutrient and energy content from the food they eat at the moment.
