Joey's develop at different rates just like humans do. It is possible for your joey's to start tasting foods around 3 weeks oop. I usually start introducing BML on my finger around that age but they are never interested. My joey's usually start exploring the cage and eating solid foods around 4 1/2 weeks. I have also heard of other people joey's not eating till they were 7 weeks. It it all depends on the joey.

[:"blue"] The average age that a joey starts eating on its own is 5 weeks OOP, mine are all curious at about 3.5-4 weeks OOP, even if it's just a little taste. They shouldn't leave their parents until they are at LEAST 8 weeks OOP. At 8 weeks they are not the same size as their parents. They will grow some more, and start to look less babyish. [/]
