Default A question about babies and wheels

Hi there. My lady robo is living in her cage with her 6 babies. They are 17 days old today. They have their eyes open and are walking round eating solids. I was wondering as I took the wheel out when they were born when is it safe to put it back in? I think mum is going crazy and getting bored. I opened the cage door to feed them last night and she climbed up the side like a bolt of lightning and nearly escaped. I'm going on holiday in a couple of days and my mum is looking after them. I'm worried about her jumping out when she feeds them. Is it ok to put the wheel back in now?

Default Roborovski wheel

Oh yes definitely - in fact I don't even remove the wheel from the Roborovski enclosures during pup rearing - this is the only species that does get to keep their wheel but then they have it at the other end of the enclosure from where they have the pups so by the time they reach the wheel to hop on any pups which have tried clinging on for a ride are dropped off and quickly carried back to the nest.

I'll put it back in tonight. She'll be ever so happy! The babies might try it too.
