I purchased 3 gliders and picked them up yesterday. 2 of the gliders are a breeding pair and are 1 year old but I also got a baby 12 week oop. My pair of year olds are adjusting find and eating like little pigs but the new baby one will not eat.

What was the breeder feeding? And what diet are you using?

I actually got some food from the breeder. Monkey biscuits soaked in water or juice, fruits, and vegetables. Also some yogurt treats which I put some of them in her "sleeping bag" with her and it looks she might have nibbled on one or two of those possibly. There is a bowl of the monkey biscuits soaked in apple juice and a bowl of mixed fruits (watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, and a grape) in the other bowl with 1 mealworm and I ended up throwing that out today and put fresh in again but she did not even touch it. I even tried to hold a piece of fruit up to her mouth and she just looked away.

Last night she was making a strange sound but I am not familiar with all their sounds yet so I am not sure if it is normal. The sound she was making was a coughing/choking sound like a cat makes when it is puking up a hairball. I messaged the breeder I got her from but she has not responded yet. The other two are adjusting well, eating great, and running around the cage playing in the toys and wheel.

I would suggest a more balanced diet other than the monkey biscuits with fruit.

They need a good staple along with veggies/fruits.

Click anywhere you see the word diet which will take you to our data base. There you will find the most popular diet plans.

We will be happy to answer any questions you have as feeding these wonderful little ones can be overwhelming in the beginning. It doesn't have to be shakehead

We're here to help.

You might want to try BML diet. It's ingredients are easy to find at a grocery store and local pet shop. If you are concerned about the Joey, this is the quickest diet to obtain that will be easy on his tummy.

I have used this diet myself, but we travel with work and need something a bit easier to prepare.

Just to say, I adopted 2 little joeys a few weeks ago, and I was slowly changing their diet to the BML. I thought it was difficult, but I found everything besides the 2 supplements at the store and it cost less than a bag of kibble for me! It took maybe 10 minutes the first time and I'm still on my first batch. It's SUPER easy. My babies took to it super quick and had no problems switching over. My suggestion would be to try that out, switching slowly so your adult gliders can have it too. I'm pretty new and inexperienced but the BML was terrifying for me and now I love it!! You can always supplement later but it's an easy starting point!! Welcome and good luck let us know how it goes!!!
