Hey guys...
Just got the weight on the little ones again. Male is holding at 14 grams....female appears to have lost a gram, down to 12...

At what point do I begin supplemental feeding?

Thanks
Dave

Are you weighing them at the same time every day?

If she stays the same for a few days in a row then I would supplement feed.

Do you have the stuff you need?

Have you increased their food, you should be giving enough for three gliders so that momma gets extra groceries.

Yeah...weighing at midnight-1am
Drowning mom in anything she wants...especially chicken and egg protein.
I don't have the stuff I need.
sounds like I better get it though. My understanding is that these guys should be putting on weight pretty fast, and I am not seeing that. :-(
Is there a good place to buy a "kit" for joey feeding?

Man...hand feeding is hard.
I think I am getting some formula into her, but most of it just goes on her or on me. Plus trying to keep this formula warm at the same time...
I hope I am getting some usable amount into her.. :-\
Weights are...holding...I think. The male's weight might have gone up half a grem...hard to be sure.
Their little eyes are trying to open. :-)
