Oh I'm so sorry, at 7 weeks oop though baby bml will not be necessary. Most babies are eating on their own and nursing very little. The babies should be just fine without momma's milk. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" />

update: they ate mealies and took licky treats from me... and peed on me. they are so sweet and i think daddy is loving the extra attention. Do you think he knows his mate is gone?
Thank you again for all of yall support in this time.

[:"green"]I sent you a reply PM about the feedings, but I'll post it again here for you in case you check here first:

Since the joeys are already 7 weeks oop, they should already be started on the weaning process. They were still nursing some though, so you will need to give them either Baby BML, Joey Formula or Ensure as a supplement to the regular foods in the cage. You can see the recipes here: Joey Formulas. Once you decide which one to use, simply put a bowl of it (about 2 Tbsp.) into the cage at night along with the regular foods. They will decide what they want to eat. (The father will eat some of it, too, which is why you are putting in so much.) If you need anything else, please let me know...

[:"green"] I'm sure Chip knows Fiona is gone, but he's concentrating on taking care of the joeys cuz he's such a good daddy... His mourning will come later, after the joeys have left home.
