PostSubject: Surprise....triplets!   Thu Jul 18, 2013 8:27 am

I took a photo of Luna/Zeke and the joeys to share with a friend.  After sending her the pic, I actually LOOKED at it....and saw a third tail....and then a butt!  I never saw it because it never occurred to me that there would be THREE!  One is obviously older - much larger.  I am giving Luna extra food every chance I get & am praying that all these little ones do well!

Just some info....Luna is just over 2 1/2 years old and has 3 single joeys before this trio.  She is doing great, but looks SO bogged down with babies!  Of course, I am probably projecting my own feelings about how it would feel to have triplets!

Aww congrats. We have had 2 sets of trips. I just gave the moms extra food and both females managed to raise them without me having to supplement.

I always give them extra food during pregnancy, but am going to start offering food in between meals just in case Luna is having a hard time getting around now that they are getting larger.  I did hang an extra food dish on the cage side near the pouch.  I don't want to be too invasive, but don't want to neglect any extra needs that arise due to triplets!  Of course, she's been doing her normal things all along - I guess what's changed is that I KNOW she is feeding and carrying 3 instead of her usual 1, so am in protective mode (more than usual...lol).

They are adorable!  I can't get over how much bigger the center joey is!  I'll bet he comes oop very soon!  All advice is greatly appreciated!
