Besides the PML mixture, what do you feed your gliders? On the link, it only lists the directions for making the PML, but not what to feed with it. Is it the same as the BML (ie, veggies, fruits,etc)? Please help!

Mary, yes you should feed them fruits and veggies with the PML wink

Is that it? I feed mine fruits and veggies, yogurt and of course, their mealies. An occasional piece of scrambled egg (well, only Gidget likes them), as well as three times a week sprinkling Gliderade on the fruits/veggies. Does that sound ok?

I'd say that sounds ok. Lilo gets chicken as a treat (doesn't like eggs) and I ice their BML with a little yogurt. Couldn't forget their mealies or I'd be in BIG trouble, lol...

Pappy, did I not send you the whole diet plan in PM when you asked me about it? If not, sorry, I thought I had.

Yes, feed 1 tablespoon veggies
1 tablespoon of fruits
gliderade twice a week
and mealies and waxworms as treats. thumb

just the PML mixture, nothing else. Thanks! So I guess I am doing it 'right'! lol We just came out of bathroom time. I took some sweet potatoes in a bowl and they were LOVING THAT! Timmy especially loves them (which is good, because he is a PICKY EATER and so small, especially compared to his other half! lol) They are now eating 'dinner' in their cage and usually they settle back in for a little nap before coming out to play in their cage. The last few nights, because I was so sick, they have not been out and were sleeping in their reptarium (I usually only use it as a playgym). Have to throw it in the wash tomorrow! lol Thanks for all the help. Timmy looks like he has gained some weight on this diet (finally!) And Gidget has slimmed down, too (which is also a very good thing!) Now, if we could only get them to give me some joeys!
