I've been in that position and it's not a good feeling. As with the GGI's, I'm always second guessing myself on something..wondering if I could be doing something differently that would be better. I am glad to hear that the female is thriving. It does sound like her temperament needs a little adjusting tho. :) Give her some more time and when you can, a little freedom. I swear that letting them loose to freeroam does wonders in the taming process. Best of luck.
