Why exactly are you breeding? Also you mentioned again...how many litters has Cornflake had?

I like the names by the way.
I used to have a mouse named Milkshake.
Unfortunatly I do not have advice for you,as I have never bred gerbils.I have bred rats and mice,but they are a little different from gerbils.

Same questions as Lisa.

-Why are you breeding?
-How many litters has she had?
-What did you get the gerbils you are breeding (Pet store animals should never be bred)
-Do you have homes already for the babies?

When was her last litter? You always want to space the litters out if possible. Also, you mentioned that other people would be taking the babies...what will happen if she has a large litter? I'm only asking because if you bring them to a pet store they'll probably end up as snake food .

Good luck. I don't have any experiencing actually breeding gerbils. If you don't get many replies, maybe try contacting a breeder and asking them.

Actually they cannot know or sure that the animal is not going to be food. People lie and don't always say what the purpose of the animal is.

Thats true.
People could claim they want them for pets,but might have other intentions.
And that is a problem,because pet stores don't actually screen...they take people's words for it.

Yeah they could say one thing but then actually do another, we'll never know for sure really.
