Sex Education Needed!

Postby peep » Wed Jan 11, 2006 10:03 am

Ok, I'm certain that Peaches is in heat, still swollen, and last night showing a tiny bit of blood. Now, how long before she and Whiz get the idea? They don't fight with each other anymore, but can't seem to find neutral territiory. He chases her out of his cage, and she chases him out of her and Cookie's cage. I've set Whiz's cage up with 2 sleeping boxes, do I just put Peaches in with him and let them work it out, or continue letting them out for their evening play time and let them decide when and how? Am I expecting romance too soon? How long after showing blood will she become receptive to him? :?

That's interesting. I haven't heard of it before. What's he doing?

Mishi got pregnant at out of cage play time while both were staying in separate cages.

Not sure, but they'll know. :twisted:

He goes to his little private corner in the entertainment center, where he hangs out on top of a picture frame and stashes all of his goodies behind. He sits on top of the picture frame and massages himself vigorously, and sucks on his penis at the same time. He looks SO embarrassed and indignant when I catch him at it!!! When he first started maturing he would jump on my son and hump his hand or shoulder.... please tell me he's not gay!!!

How old is he now? Nursing pups will do that, but I've not heard of it in adults.

Ah yes, my Chuck's favorite activity. :twisted:

Sounds like a normal male human, but I'm not sure about flyer. LOL I'll ask Dennis to respond. He's had many, many flyers.

He's about 18 mo. old now, and well "matured". He's only started this since Peaches began showing signs of coming in heat. I guess I'll have to have daddy sit him down and give him the "sex talk".

I've had breeding flyers for fifteen years. As far as I can tell there is no
way to tell 100% sure when a female is fertile. There is no rhyme or
reason, or timing, to how or when they mate. It takes seconds to get
it done. There is only about a 24 hour time frame when she is fertile.
So, the more time they spend together, the more likely she will get
pregnant. The more time they are interacting with humans, the less
likely a female will get pregnant.
I could tell you everything I do and if you duplicated it there would be
no guarentee it would work for you. Flyers are just fickle breeders.
Cage location, the amount of light at night, the amount of human
traffic through their cage area, the diet, location of nest boxes in
the cage, number of nest boxes, etc. can all effect breeding. I have
females that only have babies in a box on the floor of the cage and
I have females that always use the highest nest box.
Trying to guess when she is fertile and putting her in a cage with him
is not likely to produce any results. It could happen but I wouldn't
count on it. My males and females are together all year round except
for when a female has babies until two weeks after her babies are pulled.

As far as a flyer masterbating, I've never seen or heard of it happening
the way you described. Humping on wrists, arms, chairs, stuffed toys,
etc. is pretty common. More common in juvenile males, but females
will do it also.

I'll stop here so I don't confuse the situation more...lol

Yep, well... he has led a sheltered life you know. Say!!! Do you suppose he's been visiting those porn sites on my computer?

I'm going to call my son and have him bring over whatever that cologne he was wearing, and put some on Peaches.

Ive never seen Nugget do that,but he might when I'm not around.
Ive seen pet rats do that,however.
Nugget normally just humps his toys or a human hand..
