About 5 days ago I trapped a possum. Had the boys dispatch it. After she was dead, they noticed her stomach moving...yep,6 babies in the pouch. I have left several messages with the conservation departmentand wildlife sanctuary, nothing yet, so have been taking care of the babies since then. They are all doing well as far as I can tell, growing, active, getting quite a bit more fur. I have been tube feeding them, but they are even starting to drink a little from a dish. I've never raised possums, have raised several types of birds, baby squirrels, calves, puppies, kittens, even had to tube feed my eldest daughter, so do have experience, just not with possums. So, since the rehabbers don't look like they'll ever get back to me about these babies, I was wondering if anyone on here has any experience? When should their eyes open, and when is it ok to to introduce solids? Their ears are open, their mouths have all unsealed in the last day or so, they can walk around, and have pretty well formed eye slits.
