Hello, I have been on here before asking questions, very grateful for all the information here on Glider Central.
I received a 8 week old baby I had her for 2 weeks now, She is different in temperament then the other 2 we have there 6 months old and in separate cage. then what she is in, they never have hissed at me.
She crabs when woken up or scared but she Hisses at me "ALOT" and mostly when I have her on me she seems upset. what does hissing mean ? Hissing can mean many things. a bark hiss is something the females do when they are in heat. They hiss at each other for who knows what. Hissing while urinating could mean a Urinary Tract Infection, hissing while defecating could mean they are constipated.
She also doesnt crab anymore when I put my hand in cage or open the door and I been putting treat on my arm she will walk up my forearm and eat it and i pull my arm out slowly till she out of the cage and then she jumps on me runs all over me hissing till i get her.
Should I be doing that Or should I not let her run on me yet till she bonds
? SHe has jumped on the floor ( 3 times and ran all over ) I know now how she acts befor she jumps off me.
Since she has been on the floor and running and was scared as i chased and got her ( know now im not supposed to chase her but it scared me she is fast) will it set back the bonding
? When she gets loose on the floor I would use a piece of fleece to catch her, that way she doesn't associate your hands with being caught. I use a pouch, turning it inside our and putting my hand in it. I also have a net that I had for my small parrots, it works great.
sorry so many questions . also my oldest daughter and 2 kids moved in temporary and is little loud at times should i put her in my bedroom until she bonds
like the other 2 have ? so the noises dont upset or bother her and might help her to bond
better or faster ?Does she seem stressed by the noise and commotion? Do the children try to open the cages? If so I would put her in your room.
Thank you for your help I appreciate it alot : )
