I was originally not supposed to get them until the 15. When they hit 8 weeks but my breeder called and said they have been eating well and were ready to go home! They are so sweet! I was able to play with them for a bit at her house and they let me put them in the scarf with no problem! Once home they crabbed at me for opening the scarf but no biting still! They transitioned from the scarf to my hand to the pouch. About 5:30 this morning I heard them making kind of a hiss/ crab sound (what is a that about?) so I checked on them they were at the top of the cage and had eaten half their food. I tried giving them treats mufasa crabbed and ran away But Rafiki actually took it from me! I'm going to give them a few days before jumping into the tent But already I am blown away by these babies!❤❤❤

They are not quite eight weeks OOP and most wait until joeys are 8-10 weeks before separating them from the parents, so likely they were calling for mom.

I would give them time to acclimate to their new surroundings while spending as much time as possible with them. They are still just babies and need as much cuddle time as you can give them.

Good to know! Thank you so much I can't wait to start spending time with them 😄 I wish it wasn't bed time. Oh and I have also learned they are not fans of me singing 😵lol
