    Hello My Names Amanda, I am new to this forum I brought two new girl gerbils that are 8 weeks old a week ago from Pets At Home. I have them in a wired cage with three levels and tunnels. They are eating and drinking fine. For the first few days they were very active :) and seemed to be settling in fine. However the past four days I have noticed some change. They seem to be less active, Sleeping most of the day and night and seem a little on egde.

    I was wondering if it could be their new home (wired cage) or are they still settling in? I am getting rather concerned now :( . We haven't been able to handle them yet, they take treats from our hand sometimes.

    Thank You
