Olivia & Stuart, 2018 almost friends... usually Livvie is not a fan of Stuart (boys are annoying)
Wallaby Update 2/10/20
I finally got to see Olivia AND Charlotte's 2020 babies! They will be going on a bottle in March 2020! Olivia's between March 1st and March 7th, and Charlotte's around March 21st! IF they are GIRLS, we are keeping BOTH of them to breed in the future to Casper. If they are boys, they will be for sale shortly after they are put on bottles and are doing amazing! All babies are sold with pouches, formula, bottles/nipples and 24/7 email and phone support to their new families.
The ONLY way to get on my waiting list for a wallaby joey is to CALL ME on the telephone. I know... how very old school of me... but it is the only way for me to determine your readiness/understanding of wallaby care. My number is 218.839.4503
Just to be clear.... sending me an email with your phone number in it and telling me to call you is NOT the same thing as picking up the phone and calling me. Anyone devoted enough to care for a wallaby can spend the time on a phone needed to make that happen. I do not screen calls and I am available to answer calls most of the day as I am predominantly self employed.
Wallaby Update 8/7/19
Because I am basically obsessed with Wallabies we purchased ANOTHER one this year. We welcomed Casper the albino male into our mob on July 26th, 2019. Casper was not the name we originally were planning to use, as the other wallabies all have older classic names... but once he arrived this was the name that fit him best! (He was just a bit easily SPOOKED!) We look forward to either saving our own baby girls or buying some new baby girls to breed to Casper in the near future!
Wallaby update 12/17/20.
This is not Facebook official so if you actually read my website you have a heads up before others! I BELIEVE we have 3 pouch babies! Olivia and Charlotte have babies that I can see wiggle & jiggle occasionally... they are still several months from going on bottles. AND Sophie was caught cleaning her pouch very recently and SHOULD have a very small pouch baby hopefully! Hers would be very far out yet... This is VERY EXCITING NEWS but I don't go public usually until I actually see some little pink faces! We ARE KEEPING at least 2 girls this year for ourselves if we get them so will most likely sell only one baby in 2020, (unless all we get is boys).
Wallaby Update: 6/7/19 Olivia and Charlotte both gave us 2019 babies! Olivia's baby was a boy and he went on a bottle May 3rd, 2019. (Our first peek at him was March 17, 2019) He has since gone to live with his new family in Wisconsin. Charlotte's baby went on a bottle May 26th and was a girl. (first peek at her was April 8th) She has already moved to a petting zoo in Nebraska. (too soon for me!) We are very excited about Stuart and the girls having their first babies!
August 2018. It has come to our attention that my 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.
Update on Sydney July 2019.
Sydney has not changed at all since last August. The growth on her jaw appears to be the same size. She eats well every day and does not act like she is in pain or dealing with any stress. She still loves her humans (me) and her mob, Oliver and Sophie. The only indication that Sydney is not well is her inability to carry another pouch baby. Her last baby born was Olivia, who we kept and is old enough to have her own babies already. We love Sydney and hope she has many years here.

Olivia's baby boy 2019
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. Syndey and Sophie have both had 2 joeys since we got them. We kept the last 2 girls, Olivia and Charlotte and purchased another male from Tennessee, Stuart. Since 2014 we have had 6 joeys born here. (Yay Oliver and Stuart!) We hope to have up to 4-5 joeys for sale a year (soon) Wallabies are SO MUCH FUN! I absolutely LOVE them!!
Feel free to contact me about future Joeys! The ONLY way to get on my waiting list for joeys is to CALL ME on a telephone. 218.839.4503.
Once we have a pouch baby, we will be taking a $500 deposit for either sex. (If we are selling either way, this year we are keeping females for ourselves) 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.
