    Seldom do squirrels breed in captivity.
    Have you read any threads on how to release them back into nature?
    How old are they?

    Just a thought, but it might be dependent on the species. I know that some people breed flying squirrels and siberian chipmunks, so at least some squirrel species will breed in captivity. I know very, very little about the species that live in India. We do have some experienced members who live in India. Maybe someone else can recall their member names so that you can PM them for their advice?

    For the rest, they already know how because it is in their nature. If they are a species that requires a secure territory (or whatever else it is that they need) to cycle into fertility, then it will just happen naturally as soon as those conditions are met (and it is the right season for them).
