Default Re: Help!

I am NOT a breeder and have no experience with babies, but I've read a lot of breeding threads and feel comfortable making at least a brief comment. If a breeder contradicts anything I say, definitely listen to them over me. For holding the mom, I have no clue, to be honest. I have read that 2 weeks is the point where you can start trying to hold the babies, IF the mother is calm with it, but I can't say that that means you can hold the mother then too. However, for a full cleaning of the cage, I've seen it stressed many times that you do not want to do a full cage clean until after the babies are weaned.
