OKay I'll try the other female in a few days.
No, I wouldn't try breeding the 12 month old one now. I don't know if I'll even want to breed her at 14 months. lol
I'm not sure what the sneezy noise is either. He does it once and awhile. I'm pretty sure it is an annoyed thing...like stay away. I did notice heavy breathing coming from my male when she was barking. Man do I feel bad now. I probably put them both in a very uncomfortable situation. I've never breed before so I didn't know what to think. I thought it was some kind of mating call. LOL Boy was I wrong. :)
It's funny that you mentioned the Sugar Glider. I am getting 2 at the end of March. lol
Thanks again for your help and I'll let you know what happens with the other female.
:No problem Liz. Give the other 17th month female a whirl by introducing the male into her cage and see what happens. If she starts barking too she is not ready, so separate them and try again in a few months. The little 11th month old should at least be 14th months before you attempt anything with her.
:As far as noise, no noise is good noise. A ready female should not attempt to run or bark at the approaching male. She will relax and let him copulate. Iím not sure what you mean by sneezing. They can make a sugar glider or squirrel like sounding noise by breathing fast through their nose, usually a sign of agitation. One of our males does it often any time we go near his cageÖlol.
