I have recently had a joey come oop, 2-14-19. He does not have a pom. I have am sure it is a male rather than a female. It appears the same as an inverted pom. However, I am trying to figure out if there can be medical issues or anything of that sort that can cause issues. I have not found much information on this topic so if anyone knows anything, I am all ears.

For those of you who have no idea who I am... which is probably most of you. My name is Alicia, aka Queenduck for all of you that have been around for a decade plus. I was here for may, many years. Before life and Facebook (sorry again). And while I no longer breed sugar gliders frown
I am still in the community but I can not log onto GC at work except once a week, and when I am not at work (I work nights) I am usually asleep or surfing from my phone. I still sew and sell the The Original SIssy Pouch on Etsy and at sugar glider gatherings. And I still assist with the magic of the SGGA
What is the SGGA you say?

For me it is a place to meet with other sugar glider enthusiasts, breeders, vendors, and most of all FRIENDS. Old friend, new friends, family. To learn new tips and tricks related to sugar gliders and expand my knowledge from computer based education to round table, word of mouth, and hands on education.

The 2019 SGGA will be in
Little Rock, Arkansas
July 26th - 27th, 2019

Hosted by Donnie and Laura Ross, owners of River City Sugar Gliders

This weekend will be filled with laughter, learning, and making life long connections.

Please visit the SGGA 2019

I want to tell you about my first SGGA.

I had owned 2 gliders for just a few months- March to July. I had 3 day weekend off from EMS, and teenager with a drivers permit needing to get some drive time in, and a huge amount of adventure and curiosity. So I loaded 3 of my 5 kids up and drove from the middle of Kansas to Illinois. I did not have one single "friend' on GC and I didn't know one other actual owner, my family and co-workers thought I was crazy.

We arrived at the assigned hotel 10 hours late and while sitting in my mini van one of the kids said "Mom, are we here".

Just at the moment and man walked in front of my van and he had a tight white t-shirt tucked into a pair of jeans. As he walked passed us I thought I saw 2 large mounds move under his t-shirt (on his back), at closer look I could tell he had sugar gliders just roaming around under his shirt.... no pouch or anything. That man's name was Marvin.

I said "I think we are here". LOL

At that SGGA, I met one of the nicest couples in the world, both would become my lifelong friends. They were Karin and JIm Leonhardt.

I found out that Lima beans would not instantly kill a glider, that yes they can be woken in the daytime, and that Bourbon can seem really scary at first... but really is just one of us.

Fast forward to 2019... my oldest Son Chase fell in love with another sugar glider owner, Lysine from Lucky You Gliders, and I now have two wonder grandbabies from that 'pairing'. My closest friends have all been met at sugar glider gatherings, most at SGGA's. I created a fantastic product that has lasted for the past 15 years and is my part time job. And at the worst times of my life, the death of my father, my son's house burning down, and the best times of my life, the birth of my 6th child.... my sugar glider family has always supported me.

Had I NOT gone to my first SGGA, I would not be the person I am now.

Please join me and all of my friends and family.... grandbabies included, this year at the 2019 SGGA.

I'll try to come back every Tuesday night and answer questions, but if I am not here.... you can friend me at Alicia Kyriss Rudd or Sweet and Sour Sugar Gliders on Facebook, message me if you like. I am rarely ever sitting in front of a real computer screen but I almost always have a phone in my pocket.

I can't wait to meet you smile

Feather/Kim is correct in that you will receive e-mails to any thread you reply in unless you change your preferences not to receive notifications. I can also reach you via PM for any emergencies wink

Recently we had an upgrade to the board, so you may notice a few things that are gone, some new features as well as the board being somewhat more streamlined.

We always love to see long time members return to the board even if it is sporadically. You all have so much knowledge for our new members.

I will open the new SGGA Forum today so you can start some threads for the different topics of interest.

HELP! I'M NEW...
Yesterday at 04:11 AM
GC has a wealth of information, use the search button and you will find decades worth of experience in posts. I found back before we had Facebook, and it was a glider life saver. Love that most of the old information is still stored her. FB and area like that move too fast, are too judgemental... to get a good picture and help. I love FB for reaching out to friends and see pictures, but here is where you will find what you need. Congratulations on your new babies.

Bourbon, now that I finally found/retrieved a password, GC is working great for me and I am getting email notifications to this post. Thanks GC

I'd love to have a dedicated area for the SGGA. I have lots of plans for this years SGGA.... just to name a few that I have my hand in. Friday night welcome party hosted by Donnie and myself... with a cookie contest and prizes. Centerpiece give away... I am making them again this year and will again make some Karin inspired cage items. Saturday after vending we are having a PJ contest followed up with another "all nighter" party with prizes for those that stay up until the sunrise.

As for the SGGA conference, that is Bourbon and Donnie's event, but I am speaking about mosaic breeding.

Vending, I will be there and I'd like to have a vending contest... to inspire new and original thought.

There will be lots to do and see. I really need to start sewing now. LOL

I really hope to see new faces and some of us oldies, we aren't getting any younger smile

I'll be bringing Jacob, who was just 3 weeks old for his first SGGA. He is now 15 and 6 feet tall.

Hope to see you all there.

She got her tail stuck between the water bottle and the cage when she had her tail stuck out through the cage and happened to catch it just right when she jumped towards the bottom of the cage.

I just removed my second freedom wheel and gave it a wash and close inspection, just like the first one it looks perfect and spins with NO sound still,
just like new.
So I decided to check the website and the freedom wheels are back on sale!! I have lots of wheels and we just downsized to 8 gliders but if I need
more it's nice to know I can another freedom wheel.

Ah thanks everyone! I kind of thought it made more sense to let their individual personalities be the guide. Thanks for the fleece tip too! I actually bought some fleece so that’s perfect! Ok so we’ll just let them get used to everything and take it slow 😊

Yeah, I would wait and let them get used to your scent. Talk with them, maybe hand feed them treats but do not do too much for the first couple of days. Go with what your gliders seem okay with.

Most gliders do not like being hand held. They prefer to be moving. I am still pretty new but Elric, my most gregarious glider, thinks of me as a climbing tree. He will sit still on my shoulder, head, or back when I am moving or when he gets food but that is about it. Having food is the only time he does not mind getting petted either. I do have him trained to where I just stick my arm in the cage and he hops on. Working on getting his brother to do the same. One of my girls still crabs whenever I come near their pouch if she is in it but will eat out of my hand. All gliders have different tolerances.

Hi! And. :welcomegc:

I wouldn't try to hold them right away unless the breeder has been handling them daily on a regular basis already.

Are you picking them up from a breeder? If so take some fleece cut up into 4" squares, rub your scent on them or sleep with them under your pillow and place them in the sleeping pouch as Soon as possible. This will assure your scent, and help with the transition.

Gliders by nature don't really care to be held and if they haven't been handled much, it will stress them, especially in a new environment.

Two of mine are 4.5 years old, weren't handled as Joey's and only tolerate being held. My third glider is 11 months old and I was told he flew out of the pouch when he came out and he still hasn't slowed down... He's a good boy, he sits on my shoulder and doesn't jump off unless I prompt him to or hubby is in the room. But to hold him in my hand is practically impossible. He is Speedy Gonzalez and the Road Runner all wrapped into a sleek slippery body thats hard to hold on to.

Hi there! First time parent here. Our 2 boys will be arriving soon and I’ve seen various reports on how to handle the integration into their new home. I’ve seen some say wait (1, or 2, or 3) days before trying to hold them to let them get used to all the new smells and their new home and I’ve seen others say start holding them immediately. What do you think works best and causes the least amount of stress?
Thanks!!!!
