Hi all My little wheezy delivered two beatiful babies last night! there names are sweet pea and geronimo. They are the cutest things I have ever seen! They are running aournd the cage and I *think* popcorning!!! When I saw them running around this morning, my heart jumped with happiness but then my brain got to thinking....
What do I need to do to make the cage a safer place for those babies?

The second level needed something so they fall off
How are they going to reach the food? How long till they eat food?I have one of those hanging food dispencers... should I just lower it or get a low bowl?
The water... how old till they figure that out? Lower it?
How long will the mother spot blood?
When can the father rejoin them? Hes nutered but only two weeks ago.
How old till I need to sex them or can check the sex?

If anyone has any answers to those questions, please share!!
Only want the best for ALL my babies!!

You will need to either double-grid the cage or make the coroplast temporarily higher. Also, for the food, just make sure it is low enough so that the little ones can easily reach it. Watch them about the water, making sure it is low enough for them, and they should learn from their mother quickly. Hope this helps you, and good luck with the newborns! =) Don't forget to post pictures!
