I'm getting three 6 week old baby gerbil boys from an animal rescue
this weekend, and I'm thrilled to bursting.
They're the newest addition to my family--I have two gerbil girls, Chickie and Tricky, who have given me a taste for more.
My question is about introducing this band of brothers to another baby who is about a month younger. As I was researching cages for my new boys, I was chatting with the woman who takes care of the small animals at the petshop. When she heard I had gerbils, she asked if I wanted some babies--one of their gerbils had babies and since they can't sell them, they're giving them away. There are two left--a boy and a girl. I told her I really didn't think I could take them, but that I'd think about it. I'm really hesitant about it, but since I've learned a lot from reading here, I thought I'd ask and see if it seems like it'd work to all you guys. I'm such a softie, especially when it comes to young'uns.
Thanks for your input. --Polly
