#37073 - 02/16/05 09:05 PM how much fighting is too much?

hello all, i have two female gliders that i am getting ready to introduce. i tried before christmas once, but they ended up in a ball rolling around on the ground. since then, i have had their cages together, have been swapping their sleeping pouches and toys and some other things to let them get used to each other. i am ready to try again and am curious if there is just going to be some tiffs at first and that they will work through it or should i not put them together in one cage until there is no signs of aggression. i have never had two together so i am kind of lost here. any input is much appreciated. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumb.gif" alt="" />

I am experiencing the exact same thing right now. I just got a female 10 week today and I'm in need of some help trying to introduce her to her 4 month, now big sister. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

nichole, when you do the introductions, take them to a neutral place. Chances are since they have been side by side this long things will go better for you this time. Just have a towel or peice of fleece handy to break up any balled up fights. Little tiffs shouldn't be much problem but a full on fight could be. Good luck.

When ever you get a new glider, you should keep them in a seperate room for a 30 day quarentine period to make sure they don't pass any illnesses to each other. At the very least until the new glider has a wellness check to make sure she is healthy. After the 30 days, you can place their cages side by side so they can talk but not touch each other. After they have had a chance to talk (could be a day could be a couple of months, depends on the gliders) then have supervised play time. This should be in a neuteral place. Be prepared to break up any fights. Chances are that if they have been given a chance to get to know each other, there won't be any problems. If they don't get along, then they will need more time in seperate cages. Each glider is different and each introduction situation is different. Good luck to you too.
Judge not until you have walked in their shoes and lived their lives. What you see online is only part of the story.

I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance

Hey... good luck with introducing your females, just know that some females who are extremely terriotrial will never accept another female. We too tried to introduce our female gliders, but after many brawls, we couldn't risk the younger one getting hurt. Oh.. and the noise they make when they are being bit is earpeircing, and stands out from the noises made during 'tiffs'! Hopefully you won't have to hear it ever!
Good luck!

I found that introducing mine in the middle of the day (when they're sleepy) was much better than introducing them at night when they are fully awake.
Good luck.

I have two girls that I have now had for over a year. When I first got my second one, I thought I had the glider from you know where. It took about 3 weeks for her not to crab at me for walking past her cage. Any way, after I had put their cages together for a while, I decided to let my older one (Holly) out and she would crawl around on the outside of my younger one's (Chloe) cage. Their natural curiosity got the best of them... They fought a little bit but at least I had the cage between the two of them. When they seemed to get more interested (or tolerable <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/roflmao.gif" alt="" />) I let Chloe out at the same time Holly was out. This whole process took about 2 - 3 months. Don't give up hope. I don't have a lot of experience other than my two girls, but at first I thought they were never going to get along. Now their the best of friends. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/yelclap.gif" alt="" />
