sexing pups


This is a new section for the eGerbil website and we hope to be adding many articles in the future about all aspects of breeding gerbils.  We have added several articles to get the ball rolling.  Firstly, the sexing gerbils pages have been updated to include three new Flash guides on sexing young pups.  The photos used in the guides are really detailed and were taken by Liz Arblaster. Click here or click on the photo on the left to go straight to the new guides.  Click here to go to the sexing adult gerbils page.

 When you first get your gerbils home, the first instinct is always to get them out and play right away. However, this isn’t fair on the animals which is why some new owners instantly think their animals “hate” them, or are “nasty”, simply because they rushed in and ended up getting bitten.  Wherever you get gerbils, pet shop, rescue, breeder, they will always need some time to recuperate from the journey and become accustomed to their new surroundings.  Basic handling and training & selecting gerbils for breeding is a new article by Loz Whitmore, it also has a great video on the correct handling of your gerbils.  Click here  or on the picture on the left to go straight to the article
