The pair we recieved last week as a rehome seems to have had their joeys. I couldnt get a good look and didnt want to stress her too much, but they seemed to be fully out of pouch and their seemed to be 2 joeys. Dad wanted to come out and play as usual, I cant open the cage without him trying to jump to me, and its only been a week or so.

Any sounds or anything I should be looking out for? Seems to be a lot of crabbing but I figure thats normal now that she has 2 joeys to look after.

Congratulations on the new twins :lshower: Since they are rehomes and have only been in your home a very short time, you may not see much of them for a little while since mom is still not completely acclimated to her new surroundings.

Dad, on the other hand, sounds like he is more social with you, however, I would caution getting him out during this time as mom needs him to spell her with the twins so she can get out for meals as well as some exercise. In addition, you do not want to do anything to add additional stress to her right now with the twins just out of pouch.

As hard as it is for you, I would suggest leaving them alone as much as possible to bond with their own family. You can still sit by the cage talking softly to them, but I would not hold dad so your scent goes back in with him simply because mom may not like that.

Others may have a different opinion. This is just what I would do until you are sure the little ones are strong, healthy and pretty much eating on their own. It will only be 3-4 weeks, possibly less if mom brings them to the side of the cage wink

Scratch that, she was just cleaning them and such. Babies still in pouch. But shes constantly "singing" to them, so they should be out in the near future.

UPDATE


Joeys officially came out of pouch yesterday. So far Tony and Pepper are doing a good job of alternating parental duties so the other can eat. They both completely trust me already and Pepper allowed me to pick up one of her joeys for a few seconds. Im making sure they get plenty, and I mean plenty of food. Good amount of leftovers every morning. Ill check on the little ones again tonight when Peooer leaves them with Tony to go eat.

Good update and congratulations on the little ones coming OOP.

So glad things are going so well, and you had the pleasure of a few seconds with one of the joeys.

You are doing a marvelous job not stressing the parents, so keep up the great work continuing to keep their trust.

Aren't those little ones just cuter than anything cloud9 I know you just want to kiss them all over, but wait just a little bit longer. You won't have to wait as long as I originally thought.

Can you believe how soft they are heart

We finally decided to name then Ivy and Harley. Ivy is very much the runt of the 2 and either isn't as developed or is just much more lazy. Harley however takes after her parents and wants to explore everywhere. Tony has his neuter appointment soon but I do believe he knocked her up again last week. We shall see i suppose.

I do have a question. Assuming she's pregnant again I will let them be til those joeys are at least 12 weeks, but eventually id like to try and migrate Tug into the family. Is that possible? Then they could be one big colony, all males neutered.
