  1. Degu Discussion
    I recently adopted 2 young degus. They are not even both full-grown yet, and are both males. I have been trying to socialize them but I keep getting bitten whenever I pick them up... and of course it hurts with those sharp little rodent teeth! I have tried picking them up with a cloth and even a...
  2. Degu Discussion
    I recently got two new degus from the pet store and they were fairly young. So for a while they were skittish since i had taken them away from their mother and they were settling into a new home. Eventually they became more and more comfortable and would no longer scurry away and hide whenever i...
  3. Degu Discussion

  5. Chinchilla Discussion
    Hi, I have a question about introducing a young 5-7 month old male chin to a young adult (don't like to be called old, note the thread title lol) 2yr old female. I recently found this chin kit sat outside in a cage (aquarium at that :mad2::confused:) by the dumpster in my apt complex...
  6. Rabbit Discussion
    Hi everyone, I am posting this for a friend. She is looking for a loving home for her bunny, who she can no longer keep because the apartment she is moving into will not allow bunnies. Does anyone know of a good no kill rescue group around the Chicago Suburbs (around Joliet) that will take in...

  8. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Well I have been trying to introduce a young spiny mouse into my male colony and he has been getting chased and picked on and he is now missing the fur on the back of the neck and I was wondering if I should house him by himself? I could also be wrong on the sex but he has no teets at all but no...
  9. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    and she's doing fabulously! I was away the day they were born sadly ): but yesterday I got back and they are so amazingly well. There are six of them and I've chosen 6 male and female names in preparation. Ginger is being a great sport, taking care of them, keeping them warm, and she doesn't...
  10. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    *panic attack* so today when I introduced the new ratty to Pudge for a little while I noticed that he kept trying to mount him, so I took Pudge away and blamed it on puberty. Back in his cage, Pudge was being overly submissive with Ralphie (he has fully developed down there whilst I thought it...

    Hi all. I am very frustrated with my degus and need help from anyone who has been in the same situation. I have introduced 2 new degus to my one degu that i had and followed the introduction process carefully and at first, fantastic! Now it seems a couple of days on that my older degu is fond of...
