Just a general question for the breeders. I know a lot of people don't like to discuss this topic, or try to "hide" from it and not make their breeding program look bad. But... for those willing to talk about it... how often has it happened to you?

I feel like it's fairly common, but not really discussed.

I'm just curious!

im not a breeder and never had joeys. BUT from reading from different sources it
sounds like it is not all uncommon, specially with first time moms.
I feel like some of the issues that could make it harder is how safe the glider
feels. New home, or not bonded or friendly with owner. Also a really big issue
IMO is diet. with critterlove they have a breeders formula and with OHPW they
request a DOUBLE portion of wombaroo high protein powder in it. I just get the
feeling many owners don't take this into account. the strain of nursing takes
a lot from a mother. without the extra nutrients she just cant handle the nursing.
in the wild they can hunt for food longer, in a cage they are stuck with what they
are given.
