Hi, I currently have my two on Pocket Pets pellets, with a small amount of glider gravy, with apple pieces. Sometimes I add an additional new fruit or flower. I'm usually asleep when they are the most active, but I hear them running on the wheel. I purchased an additional wheel for the bottom of the cage. They are in a 5 foot tall by 2 foot by 3 foot cage. I have ropes and branches for them to jump around on. They seem a little bit chunky. Is there anything I can do to help? Or are they fine being little fatties?? Hahaha.. thank you in advance for any advice. April

Have you weighed them?

Weigh them and post pictures of them, they may just look fluffy.

No, I never weighed them. How do I do that? They know me, but are not completely tame/bonded. Do I weigh them in the pouch? Thank you. They sure do look pudgy! Lol

Weigh the pouch and then weigh a glider and subtract the weight of the pouch.

You will need a gram scale, easily picked up at Walmart or Bed Bath and Beyond.
