houdini doesn't like his gilfriend.

Postby Jam Alex Jam » Thu May 28, 2009 1:19 pm

i let them have a little play time together last night to see how they'd get along. He'd go inside his nest box and get mad if she tried to join him. I figured he was being territorial so i took him out of his nest box and took it out so he wouldnt' feel like she was coming into his home, but then all he did was chase her and she'd run and they'd both sqeak. She's really curious and wants to sniff him, but when she gets close he chases her away. any ideas on what to do with ella and houdini?

Don't worry about it. Chuck was terrified of Mishi the first time he saw her. They don't nest together and she constantly runs from him. They've had 36 pups! :twisted:

When I introduced my new guys, I let them see each other through the cage for several days first, then let them play together for a week or two. I put the nest box of the more dominant one in with the less dominant one, and . . . magic! They love each other now, but can't live together or I'd have zillions of babies. I'd love it, but I don't know if there are enough HOFs in the universe . . . . :scratch:

i let them see each other, and through the cage they're mostly fine. I think my little girl is too friendly. She wants to be his friend and he's not so interested in the idea.

Sounds like Chuck. He acted like he might catch Girl Cooties. :twisted:
