I am fairly new to sugar gliders, and my pair has had a sucessful birth. I was wondering on average how long OOP should a Joey be before she can be rehomed... She seems to be very healthy and gaining weight well. I have not noticed her eating, as mine dont usually come out to eat until I am already in bed, but I also have not seen her nursing anymore either.

My rule of thumb is minimum 9 weeks old but 10-12 is better as they learn a lot from their parents at that time.

As far as eating on their own they start to come out at night and nibble foods around 6 weeks but I have seen Joey's taste things earlier if they come out or you offer Mom and Dad treats in the pouch.

Thank you, I only give treats (live mealworms) when mom and dad come out of the cage to play... A little extra incentive for them to come out... I give other treats in the cage, but they really love to come get meal worms. My female was older when I got here, and wasn't handled much at a younger age so I am having difficulty getting her to bond. She's a bit wild and still wants to run away when I get her out. Since I have been handling the baby alot, she will sit in my hand afterwards, I am guessing because of the babys scent.
