HELP! I was told I was getting a joey that had been weaned but when the lady giving him showed up, it turned out that wasn't all true. She informed me when she arrived at my place with him that he is only four weeks old and was still feeding from his mom but that she had pulled all the babies to sell. I already have a glider (Bella) which I hand raised, but she understood from the beginning that I was her new momma and she gladly lapped up the formula I provided.   This new little one won't. He has not touched the formula at all and I'm extremely worried.  The ONLY thing I can get him to eat is Bella's BML mix off of my finger tips.  ANY IDEAS on what to do??? Also, when he sees Bella, he is barking and making noises that I've NEVER heard her make in the years I've had her.  Is this normal?

(((HUGS))) You will need to get a  3cc syringe with no needle and feed him slowly that way.   Also visit, tons of info under breeding and babies and folks you can contact and talk with over the phone to get a better handle on this.  Good luck!     Update when you can please!
