I know there's a general rule for about how long it's okay to keep a joey away from the parents for bonding/handling time depending on their age but can't remember what it is...can someone please help me out? I just don't want to keep them out of the cage for longer than I should.

The amount of time you are going to be able to handle the joeys is going to depend on the bond you have with the parents. If you holding the joeys is causing undue stress to the parents, then you may need to slow down and wait until the parents are more comfortable with you. Every few days, you can gradually increase the amount of time spent. Remember that a newly OOP joey nurses quite often and should not be kept from the mom for a long period of time. The following chart is a general guideline that was created by Suz Enyedy with Suz' Sugar Gliders:

Day 1 - 7...5 minutes, in sight of parents
Day 8 - 14...7-10 minutes, in sight of parents
Day 15-21...10-15 minutes, near parents
Day 22-28...15-20 minutes
Day 29-35...20-25 minutes
Day 36-42...25-30 minutes
Day 43-49...30-45 minutes
Day 50 - 56...45-60 minutes
Day 57 - 63...up to 3 hours
Day 64 + ...joey should be fully weaned

I think this should be a sticky smile


Trust is the quintessential bond, it is the foundation from which love thrives.

Discipline must be learned before desire is to be filled.

Patience is the eloquence of nature, and maturity of thought.

:agreed:

I've actually thought that about a number of threads. I think I might put together a FAQ from what I've collected from this community.
