Re: Trio Questions!!! Part Two - 04/21/11 08:24 PM

I dont think we are exactly off topic. when you have a trio there is always the possibility of having 2-4 of the same sex same colored joeys... so how we tell them apart comes with raising a trio.

I dont think anyone would be ok with jumping into tagging their joeys, but it is rather an interesting subject...

I have 2 grey boys that are 9 days apart. I can tell them apart now, but i have no clue what ill do when they catch up in size!! i can rely on telling their personalities apart like i do with their moms, but at first glance i cannot do that.

is there any way to just stain the ear?? I havent heard of tail hair tricks or toe nail tricks.. what do these involve doing????

Re: Trio Questions!!! Part Two - 04/21/11 08:38 PM

Kayla I've thought about it several times I actually asked a few friends awhile ago about something of this nature a friend was going to give me a non breeding group of leu's and I was like what the heck how would I know. I thought it would be super cute to dip their tails in different colored koolaid (purple tips orange tips.. etc) I asked around the only concern was maybe over grooming that if I did it to really dilute the stuff then they would probably groom the sweet taste off pretty quickly the dunno I've never tried it but I might. My quad has the ability to throw leu's so I might have to think about it soon. roflmao

is there such a thing as organic type nail polish. maybe tip of nail could be painted? or would they chew that off also, i wonder.

I don't think the concern is non toxic coloring we have plenty of natural ways to stain a glider.... Heck Raspberry's would work pretty well IMO my concern was the gliders over grooming the spot.

Re: Trio Questions!!! Part Two - 04/21/11 10:10 PM

No problem, here is what I saw in my trio this afternoon. Could be either a plat colored MO, creme, or a still cooking grey, which would you prefer and I'll talk to mom. roflmao

My trio is twin sisters and their hubby. Spice ( the mom in this pix ) had twins before and her sister was amazing at babysitting. Cream ( her sister ) has a joey about 3 weeks IP, I'm hoping everything will go well with her too.

Re: Trio Questions!!! Part Two - 04/25/11 07:38 PM

When I have had trouble telling twins apart (usually greys or WF), I take a good picture of their faces, they usually have a different stripe... some have longer and thinner, some have chunks, and some swirl to the side a bit.
If that fails, I carefully snip the fur at the VERY tip of ones tail, then the one tail grows a bit more square for a while, allowing you to distingush until you find other differences.

Ok well I can't keep a secret and I was taking a picture of my parents and I turned mommy over and if you enlarge you can see hair is coming in but its still a little early but mom just POPPED that baby and honestly I think its because she is so relaxed which is SO good for my girls

Re: Trio Questions!!! Part Two - 04/29/11 12:07 AM

well my trio is having some problems. shadow is all of 4 mos. oop. he went after vanilla the other night and she is missing a patch of hair on her neck. he was put in one of our spare cages probally for the next 3 months. i will still take them in the play room to play together. last night when i took them up to the play room, as soon as he ran into vanilla he got on her back, grabbed her neck and
wanted to breed with her. i seperated the 2 and kept vanilla on me the whole time. she is in heat. her and coco are both 5 mos. oop.

i hope this doesnt mean that shadow is going to give my girls mating wounds in the future when they are older.
i am only familiar with leah and lakota and lakota has never given leah any kind of wounds or missing hair.

can anyone give me some input on this?

shadow is playful, fun and has a good personality. he is already stressing without his ladies, but i am not going to let him hurt them either. i hope this is a one time deal.

Re: Trio Questions!!! Part Two - 04/29/11 12:14 PM

Nancy! I have scene two scenarios with the males on top of the females. 1. They are attempting to breed and 2. They are acting as babies trying to catch a ride lol. I think that it would be good to separate until your girls become old enough to breed just in case he is determined to breed them. I hope that he wont leave mating wounds on your girls but you will just have to keep an eye on them when you do place them back in the same enclosure. I hope I helped some I am sure someone will be along soon that have experienced a similar issue.

Good Luck! and keep us posted smile

Re: Trio Questions!!! Part Two - 05/03/11 01:01 AM

Not really sure what to advise Nancy but I will think about it. Pickle was left in the pouch last night with the daddy's it was entertaining. Both sitting there trying to decide "What do we do with it?" "No you stay! no you stay!" Trying to decide how to best sit on her, learning how to pry her off their faces.. Then of course Rhett was totally getting side tracked by his adoration of Ferdinand it was all a bit much.. But night one babies did well Pickle is growing and being loved and Thumper will be OOP soon.

Don't think there is a label to be had Nancy. If I were to label I would go with "Pinto" but that is the thing about mosaics, they are very unique. For one to be different then say Bentley above is for it simply to be a mosaic smile

Re: Trio Questions!!! Part Two - 05/03/11 02:05 PM

there are piebald mosaics which i dont see very often.
could your pickles be one? there is alot of interest in your mosaic and i think i read it could be a piebald mosaic.

Re: Trio Questions!!! Part Two - 05/10/11 04:07 AM

My trio is doing pretty well, my babies are sooooo cute!!!

Its so funny because sometimes when i check on them, there will be 2 mosaic babies attached to one mom & 2 greys attached to the other mom... I never knew that both moms (aunties) would feed their others babies.. if that makes sense lol

I am having one issue with feeding time though. I was on the breeder hpw. I was having issues with everyone eating all of their veggies & fruits, but they loved their hpw. I recently switched to the blended diet but now every morning there is left over everything & hardly any of the blended diet is gone & they are eating a little more of their fruits & veggies. Idk if i should go back to hpw, or if i should try the HPW plus or complete... I know this is more "diet" related but since feeding time is different in a trio situation im not sure what to do as I want to make sure everyone is fed.....

Re: Trio Questions!!! Part Two - 05/10/11 07:00 AM

Ok. I have an update on my crew. Its a creamino and two creamino het girls. Ruby has twin boys that are both hets. Rosie has twin girls that are both creaminos. I have been watching them carefully... and tonight I doubt I will get much sleep. Rosie dropped one of the girls OOP (left it in the pouch with dad) but they are not quite ready to be OOP yet. Travis seems to be caring for the OOP joey, but when I weighed her, she was only 7.9 grams. I hear her cry, but its not nearly as much as the rejected joeys did... and its not that frequent. I'm paranoid and keeping my fingers crossed for all of the joeys... they are due OOP anytime in the next week.
Posted By: wildlifeangel

Re: Trio Questions!!! Part Two - 05/10/11 03:43 PM

Ok... not doing so hot. Cashmere has been off the nipple for 12 hours now. I took her out and hand fed her before giving her back to them. They all licked her and seemed to care for her, but she isn't re-attaching to the nipple. Sheila told me that after 2-3 feedings, she will be strong enough to reattach herself. I tried putting her up to the nipple (holding mom) but she didn't grab it. So... send some prayers, its not a rejection, just a small, weak baby who fell off and doesn't have the strength to get back on right now.

kayla can you pour some of the breeders hpw on the vegs./fruits and maybe they will eat more?

take care everybody and keep updating this is a good learning experience for trios.

p.s. my trio seems to get along but i have to watch shadow and sometimes put him in a seperate cage when he wants to mate with one of the girls. they will be 6 mos. oop later this month.

Re: Trio Questions!!! Part Two - 05/11/11 12:23 AM

Update. I was able to breathe a BIG sigh of relief this afternoon. After feeding her 3 times, (and giving SQ fluid and dextrose once) she was getting more squirmy. I had a friend help me hold the mom still, and cashmere was able to dive back into the pouch. She has stayed there since about noon. I am checking every 2-3 hours, and she hasn't come out/off yet. Her sister started to stick out of the pouch, but she stayed put. I am still praying, but we seem to be okay for now... although we won't be completely out of the woods until they are 2 weeks OOP (when I am confident that there have been no rejections!)

Not quite OOP yet. But everyone is okay. they have been hanging out for the last day. One of the girls was climbing on mom today, but she was strong and holding on tight. I will take pics soon...

Posted By: wildlifeangel

Re: Trio Questions!!! Part Two - 05/13/11 01:03 AM

Congrats on figuring out why they were crabby! Good luck to everyone with trios.

I have good and terrible news.

First the good: I have 3 healthy beautiful joeys from the trio. All came officially OOP today and moms are doing great with those 3.

The bad news... Cashmere has not gained ANY weight since she went back into the pouch. She is still at 7 grams, except NOW she is dehydrated. The family is taking care of her... but I think Rosie just doesn't have enough milk for both joeys. I have taken over feeding Cashmere, but she stays with the family between feedings. I am really nervous since I lost the first (and last) joeys that I had to hand raise. Cashmere is SO skinny, it gives me flashbacks to what Blake looked like right before I lost him. frown

Please pray for us... its gonna be a tough road for cashmere.

And I'm still uneasy about Bailey... she has one little boy coming OOP soon and she is the mom that rejected the twins. Plus, Charity has her first joey IP as well... yikes! What was I thinking to have 4 females having joeys at the same time... with the trio firt timing...
Posted By: hwh4ev

Re: Trio Questions!!! Part Two - 05/13/11 01:17 AM

oh i hope these little ones make it. can you call anybody if you need any advice? sounds like cashmere is not thriving right now.

hoping for the best for your little ones,

Re: Trio Questions!!! Part Two - 05/13/11 07:21 PM

I have been in contact with sheila and connie. Its up to me and cashmere to determine if she pulls through. I will be feeding her every 45 minutes around the clock until she is at least 10 grams. I pulled her from the family today, because reaching in that often is stressing them ALL out. Its looking to be a LONG month!

Re: Trio Questions!!! Part Two - 05/15/11 09:24 PM

Yeah... unfortunately. She was doing okay, and I put her back with the family for a couple hours. When I went in to check on them... she was dead.

Now I'm just focusing on the other babies, since that pouch has 3 other joeys.

And as a side note... Eve wins mother of the year! Her twin grey joeys got weighed today, they are a couple days over 2 weeks and they were 29.8 and 32.0 grams! Chunkers, both of them!

Nadine, I know this is insensitive, but couldn't the reason for the joeys passing be, YOU popping their IP bums out, to check the sex before they came OOP and doing so, you dislodged both the girls to early? No wonder mom's nipple is swollen, the girls could not re attach and she became engorged.

I'm sorry to hear about the deaths of the joeys. Hopefully this has been a great lesson for you as well as others to just let babies be til they come OOP on their own. Then look at their sex. I think it's well worth the wait to prevent issues by waiting til they come out on their own. Hope everone else is doing good and mom is feeling better smile

Re: Trio Questions!!! Part Two - 05/19/11 06:39 AM

Well this sucks. I don't want anyone to feel like they can't post in this thread, let's leave the "baby popping" to its own thread... nobody knows why these babies dies & nobody ever will, let's just leave it alone & get back on track please.

My babies are doing very well, ill be updating pictures in their ad. I'm going to be switching over to the hpw plus soon as well. One of the girls is a bit food aggressive, but I can keep them from fighting if the light in my room is on when I put their food in. I think they know I'm watching them wink I totally love having a trio, its like a mini colony! Tent time is so fun! So much fur flying!!

Connie I'm hoping for the best for Mercedes joeys!! Same with your trio Nancy! Don't forget the pictures!

Re: Trio Questions!!! Part Two - 05/19/11 03:04 PM

Kayla, I saw others talking about it and since the original posts were edited to hide whatever was said before, I commented and just put my thoughts in. Obviously joey popping was brought up on this thread first before others made their own thread on it.

Anyways, let's just keep our fingers crossed that Mercedes has joeys come OOP smile sounds like she's a great babysitter! I hope she gets the chance to mother her own.

Sorry guys I've been a total slacker I did some new photos of Pickle which are on my FB I also took a few of Thumper but I didn't load any of them on my photobucket and I'm not home right now.
Thumper is doing great as is Pickle. I'm not 100% sure who exactly is feeding Pickle right now as I haven't caught her nursing more than maybe like once in a week but she is growing on a regular basis and is always attached by the hip to her little sister Thumper so its very possible Mom's are swapping duty or I'm just not catching Pickle at the right time. Pickle is 4 weeks OOP TIME FLIES!

Updates:

My breeding trio is doing great. Ive upped my feeding stations to 4. 2 covered on the bottom of the cage & 2 hanging.. Looks like the food aggression has stopped!!

Also I took in a rehome trio of 1 girl & her neutered brother. They were introduced to an intact male & lived together for a few days before he was neutered. Long story short, girl got prego & btwn the owner & i, we decided they should come live with me. She was about a month along when i got her & her joeys just came oop on Wednesday. They look a bit premature & are a little underweight. Ive started to supplement feed them & they have gained almost a gram. This trio is no longer breeding, i just thought Id update on them as well. Its interesting how the dynamics change when theres a brother & a mate. Brother stays with mom & joeys more thn dad does!!

I have a trio, mom (Tic) and her neutered brother(Sprocket) and dad (Tac).

Their joey is just past 2 weeks OOP. At first mom stayed with joey almost exclusively and would even take him with her when she left the pouch to feed.

Later dad and uncle both stayed in the sleeping pouch with the joey while mom foraged.

Uncle sprocket is the main babysitter at this point, but he eats more treats during the day than either mom or dad so he's not as eager to leave for foraging. But dad is much more protective of the joey than uncle Sprocket. Dad will bite if I don't take extra time talking to him before I remove the joey. Sprocket will nip but halfheartedly and then he just wants his own lovin.

All of them get along super well with each other.

I think mom has another IP.

Grandma TBull, this one of Bull is for you. Yeah, I do give him kisses from his great grandma every night.
