my gerbils cornflake is due to have her babies and i have counted and she should of had them on saturday,sunday or today but she hasnt and i was wondering in gerbil babies can go over due like human babies can?



i think she might have them to night but she isnt showing any sign she will, all corn has been doing is streching every so often and scratching her side and checking her self all weekend...

if she doesnt have them tonight im gonna make my mum ring the vet.

Do you know the exact date she was bred?
Gerbil gestation is 21-26 days I believe.If she goes way over the due date,then I would call the vet...but 1-2 days should be fine.

they are all feeding well and they wont shut up lol plus
i cant wait to see what coat colours they will have, but i really want to keep one with cornflake because i want the babies to all go in pairs to new homes but i dont know how many boys or girls there is yet.
