 Sugar Glider siblings and a new set of red males

Hello, as I mentioned in a previous journal entry I purchased two 2 month old siblings. I'm starting to get the feeling that they were 2 months old including pouch time as they are still wanting milk. How can you tell how old a glider really is?

The new gliders (red bellies) are far much larger than my husband's hand! The previous owners used these boys for breeding and didn't handle much, one bites fairly often, the other not so.

I would like to find two females to breed. One white and one white and creme.

My question is- as large as these new boys are will they hurt or try to over breed the females once I find potentials?

I am new to breeding. Any and all advice is welcomed.

 2 month old babies

I have 2 two month old siblings. Are they still supposed to be on milk? Gliderpidea mentioned they are weaned at 16 weeks. Should I be giving them a milk substitute? I bought baby food and added a little raw sugar. They seem like they like it. I have tried to research what to feed them, but Google is no help. I stumbled upon this forum. Any advice is welcome!

 Sugar Glider siblings

Hello All, I had a geriatric glider of 11 years, received her @ 3 yrs of age. She past today. I purchased two 2 month old babies yesterday. (I hvnt had babies) One male and one female. I was reading in the gliderpedia and it says they can mate at 4.5-6 months old. Will a bonded brother and sister mate? Is that a thing? Someone also told me that since they've been together since birth they will not mate. I'm totally not prepared to have babies having babies!! :0 with that being said, what do I need to do?? They are bonding with me already. I'm worried if I separate them they will become depressed and potentially mean.
