Hi I have 3 gliders 1 is a baby already fuzzy and doing well and I want to keep the baby girl and also keep parents. I understand keeping her with father might result in inbreeding which is not what I want, I also do not want to neuter the father. Is it ok to get a separate cage for the baby and put that on top of my other cage with mom and dad in it? Yes/no and what are better alternatives I do not want baby to have any emotional or stress problems by not being able to be with parents! What is best solution for my situation. Thank you for your advice in advance.
Anonymous, hopefully your thread will be moved to its own in the breeding section. For now, the daughter will be bred by the father if you keep her in the cage with her parents. It is also a bad idea to keep her by herself. If possible, I would neuter father and once the chance of pregnancy passes (someone more familiar will have to answer that question as to how long after neuter) then the three will make a happy colony. Hope that helps.
SandyA once my boys were neutered the smell was basically gone. I would get new fleece, a new cage and a neuter for your boy. It will likely calm him down as well as address the worst of the smell.

We live in the Albuquerque, New Mexico area..I'm sorry we can not transport them...
The person who has these gliders never registered and the person who just responded is not registered and posted as anonymous so there is no way of knowing who either party is.
The original poster did finally give a name, but that doesn't give us any more information and they never returned. Any ad must be in our Classified section of the board and the poster must be registered.
