Just because I feel like making GC a more common thing. I think I'll just post about what I'm going to try to do.
I'm wanting 1 less cage so I determined I was going to make a trio. (I already know In my head this won't work)
I just can't part with either girl. They were in a trio for a couple years. Sisters.
But I separated them due to wanting a different gene. So I figured I'd put both girls back together with no problems. It's been a couple years...Let's say it didn't go well.
Still plan to do it. Just not sure how. The male wouldn't allow her. Big nasty fight

Let me see if I have this right.

You are wanting to try this again with the same three gliders even though the last time you tried it there was a big nasty fight, and this was a couple of years ago?

Has this second female been alone these past two years? Is the same male part of the equation?

Well, the only way you will know if it will work is to try again, but not sure you will get a different outcome. Seems like the bonded pair aren't accepting any additional roommates dunno

Try pouch swapping Jenn to get the males scent on her.

If you want to know what a person is like, watch how he treats others.

You'll never know what the outcome is if you don't step up and try.

Ruth is alone.(since the end of november)
Naomi is with deemer (my mo from you Peggy). Deemer has been with Naomi for less than a year. I'm thinking of just putting the girls together and let deemer get a bit lonely.
But Naomi has a little Joey almost OOP. So I haven't done anything.

If it were me, I wouldn't do anything to upset this pair until the joey is weaned and gone. Do you plan to have Deemer neutered?

I know that I have left the disgruntled glider live alone for a week or so and then they are more amicable to living with the other ones.

The one having a joey throws a another whole wrench into the mix.

Keep us posted.

It seems that Naomi is the one that's not excepting. So I've put deeper in with Ruth and am letting Naomi get lonely

After scent swapping and prior to re-introductions, try wearing all of them in separate bonding pouches at the same time. Place the pair in one and the loner in another and wear them over same side/overlapping. After a while, place screen to screen a few times or so prior to re-introduction. In the meantime, keep them caged apart.
