Default 1" of tape on front of Igloo as nesting box?

So our lil girl had unexpected babies today, we had no idea she was pregnant so we didnt have the cage setup for it. She has them in her Igloo but Im a little worried that the babies might wander out... Should i make a small lip to put at the bottom of the igloo entrance? Like maybe just an inch of cardboard or somthing? or should i put a whole new box in made out of a ice cream carton? Ooor should I just leave her be? Shes also on fleece, i put some strips of papper towel in the cage but i heard its best to have shavings, what should I do!

No. Do not mess with the nest box, cage, or her at all. Keep things quiet, stay out of the room she's in and check food and water morning and night. The more you are around, the greater the risk she will kill or reject them.

Do you happen to have a nursery monitor? If so, quickly plug it in and set the receiver by her cage. You can listen from afar.

Like I said in your first post about the babies...Leave mom and babies completely alone except to feed and water her, NOTHING ELSE...if you disturbe her she will kill the babies/
