Currently I have 2 breeding pairs. My one produced a leu, which I posted a thread on a few weeks back. Well, I've decided to keep her (named her Pax) and for the heck of it I virtually paired her with my male glider (Eros) in the other cage since he's leu het. Their potential offspring would have a low inbreeding percentage (1.3%). I have my platinum (Cordelia, whom is Pax's "aunt") with Eros right now, although they haven't produced any babies yet. I would really love to place Pax with them and have a breeding trio but I'm unsure how I would go about this. At this current time Cordelia is over a year old and Eros is roughly 6 months old, while Pax is only four weeks (she is still with her parents and won't be separated for awhile, even then she wouldn't be placed with Eros until 10-12 months old (I normally wait for 12 months as a personal preference))

So, back to my question, how would I go about introducing Pax to the pair? Since they don't have any joeys yet should I pull Cordelia from Eros, place her in a new cage with Pax (once Pax is old enough to be moved from her parents) and then introduce Eros back to them when Pax is old enough? Or should I leave Cordelia and Eros together and introduce Pax to them as a pair gradually over the course of a few weeks once she is old enough to be bred? I do understand that it would be easier to get Pax her own mate but I really don't want a fourth enclosure aside from a temp one (my third cage one has an adopted and surrendered pair). However, that being said, I wouldn't put Pax with them if it proves to put her or the other at risk.

And with that being said, if I do buy a new glider to mate with Pax I would want a mosaic. Is that a bad idea? To pair a leu and a mosaic? I know breeding the same color upon color (like leu x leu) is frowned upon, but would a leu and mosaic be OK even if it's a leu mosaic?

I hope I wasn't talking in too many circles! smile Any help is appreciated. Or even experiences of having a breeding trio.

Breeding trips are extremely tough to get just right. The most successful ones are done with related females, preferably pouch twins. I'd suggest reading up on breeding trips in this forum, there are a few good threads on what can go wrong. I've had two trios myself, both with twin sisters and they both had to be split up. I won't do anything other than pairs from here on out, it's too heartbreaking to see the baby bumps and then have them disappear frown

You can pair a leu and a mosaic, I would recommend a non-leu het mosaic so that you wouldn't have the chance for mosistic joeys (I had one of the first mosistoc and coined that term, her mom was a mosaic 12.5% leu het and ended up proving to be 100%•leu het lol)
