Olivia & Stuart, 2018 almost friends... usually Livvie is not a fan of Stuart (boys are annoying)
Wallaby Update: 4/10/19 On March 17, 2019 I got my first peek at Olivia's joey! Since then I have seen him/her every day peeking out! This means that Olivia's baby will be going on a bottle around May 4th! Olivia and Charlotte BOTH have pouch babies and both babies will be for sale in the summer of 2019. Charlotte's baby is considerably smaller than Livvie's but I did get a quick peek on 4/8/19! (it's face was very pink and very small) Once I see Charlotte's baby every day, we will start counting down to bottle time.
August 2018. It has come to our attention that our favorite female wallaby, Sydney, has a growth on her jawline. We originally assumed this was lumpy jaw, which is often fatal. (and the bacteria that causes it is also contagious) Sydney was taken to the vet and her jaw was x-rayed and biopsied. The results of the biopsy show that no bacteria is present and the vet considers her growth "more consistent with a cancer" . This is bad news for our baby, and us... On one hand, at least she is not contagious to her mob, but on the other hand, both illnesses are fatal. I assume this is the reason that Sydney has not carried a pouch baby in well over a year. It is most likely that she will no longer do so, due to pain or stress caused by her illness. The only treatment suggested was to remove the growth by chiseling it off her bone, a procedure I am not willing to allow. The pain and stress of this surgery would most likely be a (early) death sentence as she would never eat again. I don't believe that is a surgery she would survive. Wallabies are very high stress and if the surgery didn't kill her, stress myopathy probably would. For this reason, we have opted to forgo this option for now.
Sophie's 2018 Joey! Photo taken 2/16/18
We first got wallabies in 2014. Oliver was purchased in Illinois and Sydney in Michigan. We loved them so much we added Sophie soon after. Since 2014, we have had 4 joeys born here. (Yay Oliver!) We kept the last 2 girls, Olivia and Charlotte and purchased another male from Tennessee, Stuart. We hope to have up to 4 joeys for sale a year (soon) Wallabies are SO MUCH FUN! I absolutely LOVE them!!
Feel free to contact me about future Joeys! Once we have a pouch baby, we will be taking a $500 deposit for either sex. If you want one specific sex only, its best to keep looking as we won't know sex until the day we put them on bottles. (we do not steal them early to look and give them back) Males are currently selling for $2500 and females for $4000. These prices are subject to change reflecting the current market.
We do NOT ship joeys, they must be picked up here at our farm. All wallabies are sold with a veterinarian health certificate, formula, bottles and 2 pouches. We offer 24/7 support to new wallaby parents as well. My goal is that these babies get the best possible home with someone that is capable and willing to give them the very best care! I do not keep an official waiting list since it is so long between Joeys. I also WILL need to have an actual phone conversation with anyone interested in a joey. Email, and texting etc.. is fine for some information, but before anyone will be allowed to commit to a joey, we will need to talk about many aspects of wallaby ownership.
