putting male back in with mom after being seperated for 10 days after birth

had my first litter of baby chins. i seperated the father from them and am planning on keeping him seperate for 10 days so the mom doesn't get bred back. they are VERY bonded and never aggressive to anyone or anything.
my concern is, should i be concerned about the father being aggressive toward the babies when i put him back with them?
i've tried to find info online about this, but can't find anything.
thank you.

Nope.
If you are unsure, try letting the kits talk to dad a couple of minutes every day.
I've only had problems with the kits attacking dad.

But be careful when reintroducing him to mom. Sometimes it can go very wrong, even though they like each other very much. Mom can get very aggressive.

be careful and make sure you do this when you can be home to watch. Normally putting the male back in goes fine but sometimes the Female does not want the male back and the baby can get hurt in the tussel and on rare instances I have seen a male attack a baby before

I agree with the above. I would remove the babies when you put dad back in the cage. If all goes well for an hour or so then put the babies back. Most chin dads are great with their kits.

we haven't had any problems with ours, however as we just had him castrated we have had to keep him away from them!!

But they spend an hour each evening out together & he loves his babies!

i agree, i dont think the dad would be agressive towards the kits, but i would be careful with mom. i had an incident where my female had kits so i removed dad and all that. well when it came time to put him back, she wasnt having it!!!! i had to wait until i weaned the babies and then put him back in there. this is the only time she has every done this, and they have had 5 litters together!!! they are very bonded, she just didnt want him in there when her babies were in there.

agreed! mom can be very defensive especially with new kits. Just have to keep an eye on them monitor them every second just in case!

Update...

We let the whole family back together in the cage last weekend, & they've been fine, in fact they're all much happier...& no problems at all
