So long time reader first time poster. I have a male joey who is about 5 months old, and as of late I have to shoo him away from my face as he has taken to getting to and latching onto my face on occasion during out time as of late. I initially thought I may have startled him and he got me on the face twice. I put him back in his cage to let him calm down and finished out time with the others. About two weeks later (a week and a half, looking back from today) he got me on the lip and I literally had to wait for him to let go, and he drew quite a bit of blood. I have bred Joey's for the last 3 years never had this problem and he isn't a result of in breeding. I don't want to jump to possibly having to put him down or finding him a home with someone who can give him more specialized attention than I can afford to at the moment. Any advice is welcome, just looking for some help, be ause it's getting to where I can't trust the little guy when he is out.
