#25785 - 08/28/04 01:52 PM I have lots of questions...

At what age do females start going into heat?
How can I tell if they are in heat?
How can you keep a female from getting pregnant without neutering the male?
I know I'll have more but I can't think of them. We are thinking about getting a male to go with the two females but I don't want them to just keep having joeys all the time. That would be so exhasting for me and the girls. lol.
Thanks!

Females can start going into estrus as early as 5 months oop and as late as 18 months oop. Just depends on the female. The only way I know my female is in estrus is that they are mating otherwise I don't know how you would tell. You have to neuter the male if you don't want joeys. There currently is no other way to prevent pregnancy. Hope this helps. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

could you keep the male in a seperate cage while the female is in heat or would that do something bad?

<img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/littleglider.gif" alt="" /> [:"magenta"] well, since it is hard to tell when a female is in heat, how would you know when to separate them? also, if you separate them while she's in heat, the male is gonna get very lonely and extremely frustrated. and that can lead to more serious problems.
