It does sound like she is definitely pregnant. For now try giving them two separate places to eat as far apart as possible to see if that fixes the problem.

If not, then feed the female outside the cage separately if possible. Let us know if the two feeding stations work.

Almost forgot :welcomegc:

You do need to leave daddy in the cage as once the joeys are out of pouch he helps to take care of them. I agree with Karen about feeding them separately.

Try getting the food into the cage before they get up for the night.

Put it in different areas and if possible different levels in the cage.

Keep us posted on how things are going with them.

Food aggression is a problem with my gliders too...

I have one that can't stand to watch the others eat sometimes. So I place the dishes where they can't see each other's dish. I put up partitions to block their view. My dishes are also at different levels in the cage.

Yes it is. Dad helps raise the Joeys. He grooms and keeps them warm while Mom is out of the pouch, and as they get older, they take turns carrying them around on their back

I am going to move this thread to Behavior & anatomy since it relates to the feeding behavior rather than the actual 'diet'. While there was some mention of whether or not to leave dad with mom, when/if that becomes an issue with joeys, please post in Breeding & Babies Forum.

:gluck: with the multiple feeding stations. I really hope this solves your problem.
