I have two brown,white and black Gerbils...Daisy and Dixie ( Well I now know Dixie is a male so I need to change his name)
One of my moms friends gave them to me after mine died ( she was 5 yrs old ) She told me they were both female so I had them in the same cage together. Well I woke up one morning to find that Daisy had had 3 babies, Their almost 6 weeks old No problems at all.
I got Dixie and Daisy when they were 6 weeks old so I know that it's her first litter and she done great as far as taking care of them. Well I want to keep all of them but I don't want no more babies.
So I have a few questions and I haven't been able to find any good sites that answer them.
1. Can I get another cage and keep females in one and males in another or do males fight??
2. How can you tell a male from a female...I don't want to find out to late again.?
Sorry these sound like beginer gerbil parents question but My first one was kept alone and I did read that they do better in pairs so thats why I got both Dixie and Daisy..
I would really apprecite any comments/suggestions
Thank-you in advance
I'm trying to get some pics of them to put on here but they just won't hold still...
