The babies come out fully formed and will be running around very shortly after birth - they will obtain milk from their mother (who has two nipples) and will begin eating independently (pellets, hay & veggies) normally within a day or so. You will need to determin the sex of the babies by the time they are 4 weeks of age. The babies will suckle their mother's milk for about 4 weeks and should be weaned at about 4 weeks of age - which is when you should separate the male baby's from the females - you can leave the baby girls with their mother. You may want to put any baby males in with their father for company for now.
