 New joey

My sugar glider daisy died from cancer a few weeks ago#128542; and I have another sugar glider Winston that needs a friend and you can tell he Lonly and misses his sister. My husband bought me a joey and I go pick her up Friday the breeder said she is fiesty and nips. What are you thoughts on getting a joey with a temper? And do you think she will grow out of it after she gets to no me and gets comfortable? I got daisy and Winston as adults Iv never had a joey.

Yes that would probably also help but make sure the bedding was only in the cage for a day or two then switch it. You don't want it to smell too bad or be too dirty! I know I said this before but I have two posts that I need help with if you could help me out that would be great!!!! Vanitytheglider!

Make sure you have separate cages and let her adapt for a few days and do not introduce her quite yet. Make sure she feels safe and comfortable and give her a few treats as well as try to play with her! My best advice is wait about a 3 days to introduce her to your other joey so she can get used to her surroundings. Try to bond with her as much as you can during this time! When you introduce start slowly, one out of the cage one in the cage, then if they don't turn aggressive, give them a treat. Wait until they can do this 3 times in a row. If someone breaks the chain at 2 start over and don't let them have a treat. Finally, try putting them in the same cage for a little at a time just until they can go without nipping or crabbing! I hope this works for you and is helpful!!!! Vanity the Glider P.S. Do you mind checking out my journal? I really need help as well!
