I am new to all this joey stuff and I don't know what to do now. I hope you guys can help.

Yesterday morning my sugarglider mum left one of her two joeys at the bottom of the cage. When i opened the cage the joey started making noises and the mum came over to get him, but tonight the same thing happened...

Is she rejecting him ? Does anyone recognize this situation ?

It's hard to say really, as long as mom isn't ignoring the cries and is feeding the joey, I'd lean towards no it's not being rejected.

how old are the joeys?

are they first time parents?

do you have a rejection kit in case it does get rejected?

That was what I was also thinking.

The Joeys got ootp last friday.

Yes, it's the first time they are having joeys. So I'm thinking it's just that they doesnt really know how to do it.

No.. I don't know where I should get that in The Netherlands...

you can get rejection kit from the UK.
1st time parents are often less carefull with their joeys, also, the joey might fall from their nesting area while the parents are sleeping (happened here several time when I was using fleece pouches, tehe joeys were climbing out and falling or were paralysed on the outside of the pouch without knowing hwo to go back by themselves)
