Hi i have 3 new degus, i have them four days now and just this evening when i was feeding them a fight broke out, lulu won't let the other 2 near the food, i tried putting in 2 seperate food dishes but it didnt really work. Any1 have any suggestions? I'm worried cuz i wont be here every morning to keep an eye on them. My bf is goin to come up to my house 2mro and feed them while i'm at work til we figure something out. Any one else have this problem??

It's best to have one food dish per degu so in this case, try having three. You could also try having them in separate areas of the cage.

Good luck!

We figured out a solution...the cage has 3 floors so we put one degu on each floor and then block the stairs until they have finished eating because if i dont block the stairs they still steal from each others dishes and lulu even tries to rob the food out of the others paws!! Hopefully after a week or two i wont have to block the stairs! :)
