Talking Babies!! Yay!!

Squirt had her babies this morning!!! We found one wandering around and squeaking in her cage awwwwwwwwwww. We took Nibbles and his wheel out today and separated them (he was hiding in the corner anways I think Squirt set him straight lol). We dont know how many babies there are, 2 for sure tho. She was pretty big so I'm guessing a lot. Maybe later I'll see more out wandering!! Pics soon!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!

Talking

They are the cutest little things!! I just wanna pick 'em up and cuddle 'em!! (I'll wait a few weeks for that though!). When Squirt came out to get some food I peeked in and counted 4 or 5, but there coud be more!! When shes in there, there's heads popping out everywhere under her (they're playing peek-a-boo!!), it's so cute!! And they're so noisy it's like they're having a Degu party over there!!! But poor little Nibbles all alone
I'll keep you guys posted and I'll have pics when they all come out!!

Yep they are adorable, but it is for the best to avoid picking them up for a few weeks and to separate daddy..... Congrats and I cant wait to see pics!

Here's the first baby pics!!!! There should be more tomorrow, my camera batteries are recharging . I'm 98% positive theres 5 babies!! The mommy Squirt is doing well health wise, but sad n missing Nibbles (in the other cage), they keep sniffing each other everytime they get a chance. On a happier note, HERE's THE PICS!!! YAY BABIES!!

Question Sexing the babies

Everything is going great with the little degu family!! All of the babies are running around and playing now. When are they old enough that my husband and I can pick them up to sex them (they're a little over a week old now)? I want to wait for the safest time to do so that way I don't harm them psychologically. Should I wait for them to become used to me by resting my hand in their cage like I did with the parents?

I would let them get used to you first, so letting them sniff your hand and getting used to you is a good idea! They are adorable, I love baby degus!

I definately agree with Steph, the babies have to get used to you on their own terms so put your hand in and let them get used to your smell, let them explore your hand and in no time they will venture further as degu's are nosey by character and don't like to think they are missing out on anything! They are all super cute thanks for sharing
