This was amazing thing ever, but kinda scary at the same time!!!!! mlove
My glider was at the bottom of the cage and gave birth and I got to see the joeys come out and then I was watching the joeys tryin to get to the pouch and they fell off into the poop pan help so I picked them up gently and my husband helped me get her into the sleeping pouch and held the momma so I could get the joeys into the mommas pouch and I got them in and we fed momma some mealies and then she just sat in my hand opened her pouch and licked her babies and got them attatched!!! dance It was AMAZING and my husband got a pic of them in my hand!!! cloud9 IT was scary but had a wonderful outcome!!!!! I just had to share this with everyone!!! jump the joeys were soo tiny I cant even begin to explain it!! jump

Holy Cow! You know I have read how small they are, but I guess it is hard to picture. I have been reading a lot of posts on GC of people witnessing the birth of their joeys- lucky!

I am so glad it all worked out so well and she allowed you to help her get them into her pouch. I will never forget the time that Daisy gave birth while I was holding her heart It's one of those 'once in a lifetime' experiences, for sure!

They are tiny, and it is amazing, but they are a heck of a lot bigger than grains of rice, which I ridiculously heard people sprouting about. How big are some peoples grains of rice?? LOL!

Very true, Greg thumb The joeys that DaisyMae gave birth to in my hand were actually about the size of navy beans wink

I always heard (and have repeated) a cooked grain of rice. When I saw Kira birth her joeys, they were not much larger than a cooked grain of rice, really. I imagine size can depend slightly on the gliders, just like babies are born at such different sizes/weights. dunno

Amanda, how is mommy and her little ones doing?
That truly is amazing, and a true miracle that you were there and were able to help get those little ones back to mommy.
My prayers are with them. hug2

That is just beyond crazy! Congrats on getting them rescued. Great picture too! Fingers crossed that these special babies make it all the way! They so deserve it!

On a second thought...I wonder how many of us loose joeys in this very way?! Where they fall off?! It's kinda sad!
