I was given a free female gerbil and cage around easter, then less the a week or so she had three babies, they are all "FEMALES", now they are starting to get there fur now. One is a mama's girl aka same fur, the other two are the same color looking like the father. Which I sadly dont own! He's now being used as a breeder gerbil now. I hope the twins will have different markings to tell them apart. I think I maybe keeping them all since they are indeed female babies. My favorite is the one that looks like the mom, shes more well behaved. One of the twins is just eviler lol. Eepp. They are wonderful. - I know tons about gerbils too - One thing for sure is I need to get PHOTO'S !!!!!!!! Does anyone else like them or own any? They are clean/cute/never bite. They are more of a run away then stay and bite. They could if they wanted.
