2-4 times, in their life time?? but thats all i wanted to know thanks!.
becrac16 her first litter if perfectly healthy she only gave birth to two which is normal for a first littler, they where mature gerbils, but when a relitive brough over a couple of tubes from a factory she didnt think twice and just gave them to the gerbils, she only now thinks that they could of had chemicals on them, one of the gerbils is still alive and i do hope it survives.
her second litter,she had 5, is also healthy and they would all be mature now, there is no illnesses being passed down if there was i wouldnt breed thats just plain stupid, i make sure they all good to good homes and the people do know how to look after gerbils if they dont, i dont give them away to them.and people come to me and ask or gerbils.
im not one of those people that breed for plain "fun" i dont want to stress my gerbil out, and i want to make it a hoby thats why im asking how many time should a gerbil be bred because google itsnt much help when you get loads of different answers thats why i wanted a expirience gerbil breeder becuase they know and if i dont ask questions from gerbil breeders how will learn more? its the best way to get more knowledge about breeding. and i do know what i am doing and what to do if the mother wont suckle the babies ect.
and all my gerbils do come from one pet store(i make sure that the gerbils ar not related to one other, i buy the gerbil about a year apart, and thats where i will buy the only animals in black burn from because they are a very good pet shop all the staff know about all the animals they are selling and know how to look after them properly, and if the animal did get sick they pay for the vet bills, all the animals their are pefectly healthy and they breed their own gerbils when needed or get them of gerbil breeders. so please dont go shouting the shop is very relible.
hope i answered all the questions there
