Is it possible for just weaned babies to really be sexually mature? My twin boys are a little over 9 weeks old (OOP April 15th), and just seperated from their parents last night. Tonight I noticed bald spots on both boys! I thought males had to be 6-8 months old to be sexually mature? Could this be for real, or might the spots fade after they're been out of the parents' cage for a few days? I'm attaching a picture of Brandon, the flash is a little bright but you can see the bald spot really well.

I was really hoping to be able to have a juvenile cage with the three girls I have that are all young, but now I'm really thinking that is a bad idea. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/nixweiss.gif" alt="" />

I got Brodey when he was 13 weeks OOP and he bald spot was already well developed. Some males just develop earlier than others...

Bald spots can sometimes come as early as 6 weeks. It just happens sometimes. Don't werry. Doesn't mean he can have babies right away. I had one with a bald spot 6 months before any joeys came along. His female was already two years old. She was ready for joeys.

I agree with Bitsy. The bald spots can come long before they hit sexual maturity. I have had joeys start getting them as early on as 6 weeks oop, but they didn't have joeys until much later on.

Yeppers, Brodey had his bald spot at 13 weeks, but his pompom's didn't drop until he was almost 2 years OOP!
