Is it normal for rodents to skip meals etc. Only my jird is perfectly healthy and hes drinking fine, only he'll go a day or so without eating and then start to eat again. Also he's been sleeping alot lately could this be to do with the time of year??:confused:

I don't know much...actually anything about jirds.
Do they hibernate?? Maybe he/she is getting ready to do that?
I am sorry...I know nothing about jirds.Hopefully someone can help you.

I don't know about jirds either, but a lot of rodents store food in their favorite places and hideouts. Usually to hide from cagemates, and just a habit when they don't have cagemates.

Yeah thanks guys and you were right crwoodyspets i found a lil stash in his house, he lost his brother a few months ago so i think this might explain his behaviour.
