 Introducing Benji to the Girls - Part 2

Today - October 4, 2008

All 4 gliders are in a sleeping pouch which is hanging around my neck. There was no crabbing. No fighting - no hissing. They were a little excited and kept crawling all over the pouch - but so far so good!!! After they settled down, I gave them each a yoggie drop. Timid little Benji immediately stole Weasel's, which I thought would start a rucus - but didnt. They all had a drink of some juice and are now all sleeping soundly....

Tonight, I am putting Benji in the cage with the girls for the first time. I guess I wont be getting much sleep - as Im still not 100% things will go well when he is in their "territory".

Wow - I NEVER imagined it would be this easy!!! It took me almost 3 months to get Weasel integrated into Tilly and Tosca's cage. There was fighting and hissing and you name it!!!

Fingers crossed that all goes well tonight!!! I really dont like having two cages!!!

Hey! I was brought to you because you lived near St. Louis. I'm in St. Peters with a single male glider, and was looking for another cage for him. I'm low on funds at the moment, having spent more than 100$ on the little guy to get toys and etc, and was wondering about if you had a cage I could use? And perhaps some suggestions about picking out a cage mate for him. My uncle had bred gliders for a while, and said that this male seemed fine with others, but came home one day and found the male alone, the others dead. I'm not too sure how he introduced them, or what had happened, but I need a bit of help!
