Superworms can be fed to flyers, Giant mealworms are not the same thing.

Re: Hair loss/Baldness

It is just her molting. She looses fur on her tail every year, but it grows back. She is doing very well. I actually have 5 flyers now! lol

Re: Adding A New Flyer

I also have two sisters that were both handraised, but were seperated for almost a year (I raised Jett, my friend raised her sister, Eris. Trying to reintro them, but it is not going well!) I think I need to order a new cage and have that for when actual cage time together happens!

Re: Adding A New Flyer

I know I ended up having to seperate Rocket and Luna after just over a month together, he got so bad, he would not let her out of the nestbox and he would make her scream. I could not let it go on. (He would also lunge at the cage front if I even walked into the room!) Two minutes back in his own ca...

Re: Flyer Friendly/Unfriendly States

Although I agree it is insane to have them legal in some places, but not others, please be very careful.

Re: are babies on the way????

I have had Luna for two years, but she was found abandaned in a cage outside a petstore, so have no idea how old she was when she came here (but from her size/weight, she was full grown). Rocket is around 2 yrs as well, and I am his second owner. I am north of Boston. Believe me, since there are no ...

Re: are babies on the way????

That I understand, but I guess my point is the things Luna is doing she has never done before (yes, she has always stashed and whatnot, but this is almost a frantic behaviour, not one she has shown before.) I didn't know if it is because she is preggers, because Rocket is there or what. I just know ...

To mate with Luna last night. First off, when I fed them, he kept chasing her back into her pouch, so I took her pouch out and put her down at her dinner (she is fed on the bottom, him on the top. He doesn't like being on the bottom, so she can eat in peace once she was down there). Then I had to ju...
