Daisy and Sweet William are ready to have their joeys any day. Well weeks ago I was talking to Alicia and Tony (desertmommy) and I thought I felt 3 joeys ip. Thought I was crazy. I also thought Daisy should have been due 2wks ago. Since Friday she has been singing up a storm. When I check her she has so many different body parts showing. It made me say "Could she possible have triplets in there?" crazy dunno

Well guess what "I SAW 3 JOEYS LAST NIGHT!!" HELP! help

I am excited and concerned at the same time. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. I know Peggy will tell me to breathe Not sure that I can.

Trying not to mess with her to much. Giving extra mealies. Will get pictures when I am able. Here she is last week.

I hope all goes well, and keep us posted and keep the pics comin'! heart

Oh wow... how cool is that? Congrats. I don't breed but from reading posts I know you should be ready to supplement feed. There was someone who recently had trips, supplemented a little, and everything has turned out well. Hopefully someone will be along to help you more. Daisy will probably be a great mom, just be sure she eats and drinks well. Good luck!

Wow congrats! I have never had triplets,I am sure someone with experince will help you out more. You should have a scale ready to weigh them when they come OOP and weigh each day to make sure they are gaining weight. Visit Suz's site and study up smile Learn how to check if their tummys are full. You will probably have to supplement one or all of the joeys, it is suggested to supplement the larger joey so the smaller ones get more of mama's milk which is better for them. Make sure to have the supplies ready and good luck smile

There have been couple sets of triplets lately on the board, Bdeese had some recently I think, maybe get in touch with her...

Looks like triplets. I've been fostering a pregger momma and she had triplets, looked just like yours. Good luck with your babies. We lost all 3 of ours, 2 girls and a boy, and I supplement feed all 3. Keep us posted!

Thanks you guys. I sent a pm to bdeese. Hopefully she will come on soon and see it. I have been breeding for a year now but I have never had triplets. I hope Suz will see this too. Think I have a few more days. I have a scale and stuff to supplement.

Oh wow Cindy I don't remember you having triplets. It good to hear they did fine.

I think I am a little more concerned because she lost one of her first joeys a few days oop. These are her second set. Hoping all goes well.

My very first set of joeys were triplets. That was about 10 years ago. At the time, I didn't even know triplets were rare. My gliders, Dixie and Dexter, did a fantastic job with them and they all survived with no intervention from me (I didn't even know you COULD suppliment feed them back then).

Prepare for the worst and hope for the best and be happy with anything inbetween!

Reeny, If you're getting advice from Barbara/bdeese and Cindy/hollysmom then you'll be just fine. They both did great with their triplets this summer heart

Wow Teresa how amazing triplets with your first set of joeys.
Thanks all for your help. It is so good to have this community when you are feeling slightly unsure & nervous about things.

I have been giving her extra mealies all through the pregnancy. Last night I made some scrabbled eggs and put a extra dish with the eggs and a little extra yogurt. She did eat a lot of the egg when she first got up. She really didn't eat much HPW which is unusual. She has spent a great deal of time singing to the joeys.

Just gave her a bunch of mealies. Sweet William is going to be the size of a horse because he thinks he should have equal amounts. "Little Piggy" He is a sweety but when it comes to mealies he is crazy. He has a short body, he is going to be more square than long.

Any how thanks for the help. I will get pictures as soon as I can.

I got really lucky with my trips. I know that now. They came oop about a year after I got my gliders and I knew NOTHING about gliders back then. I didn't know they could be rejected. I didn't know they could be supplement fed or even hand raised if needed. So very much I didn't know back then. This was all pre internet/computer time for me.

I almost wish I could live in that "ignorant bliss" again. Now, I would be just a basket case with trips on the way again. You've got a good network going with help if you need it. If there is anything I can do to help, just ask. I rarely sleep at night.

I just wanted to post that while trips rare and can go wrong, I wanted you to know they can go completely right as well.

Thanks Dancing! I agree with you when I got my first suggie over 10 yrs ago. I really didn't have internet. I didn't know as much as I do now. Didn't worry as much either, and Suggie was just fine. Sometimes "ignorant bliss" is nice!

At least I didn't have nightmares and worry!

Here is a picture of the triplets and Daisy. You could see each triplet clearly. I think there is two girls and a boy. Still not 100% sure. By the time I tried to take pictures she had move them under her, but I think you can see 3 tails.

mlove Beautiful! Yes, I definitely see all 3 tails if I look closely smile They are still a bit small and unfurred, but that's no surprise with there being triplets. Human twins and triplets are often a bit premature, too heart I would definitely consider supplement-feeding them once they are detached.

I think she has about 2 more days. I think by the weekend. I went back and read throught the threads of Barbara and Holly. I definitely think since she lost one of her joeys the last time that I may supplement once a day at night like Barbara did.

Reading back through those post made me realize things went pretty smoothly. I am hoping for the same.

Here is an update! Daisy is getting bigger bursting at the pouch. Still stuffing them back in, which is ok with me. Gives them more time to cook a little more. So amazing!

I cooked some chicken this afternoon and hand fed her a little. Still using the glider crack and extra mealies.

Now I think there are two boys and one girl. Thinking of naming them Jade, Juniper, and Jasmine. Although I will take name suggestions.

Here is a pictures of her tonight.

Mom has been singing so much you wouldn't believe it and the two boys are detached and oop this morning. Each weighing 10.4 and 10.6 gms. Although it is very hard to tell them apart right now. They look so a like. The little girl is still in pouch.

Hope all goes well.

Here are a few pictures. Can't see each clearly but there are 2 boys and one girl.

The little boys are dark and the little girl is much lighter in color. Will try to get pictures later.
