    We all understand how sharp babies can be. I got it on the face, eyelid and mouth with last year's babies.

    I would suggest taking babies out of the room to feed. It will let the baby eating have some peace and quiet and may not incite quite a riot from the ones waiting on deck to be fed.

    Ouch yes I definitely have straches all over me even with everything I wear that's just part of it I supposed the eye doc said I have a really bad scratch on eye so just antibiotics and a patch for now yes perfect for halloween. They defiantly have got my face lip and eye lid but this was first time on the eyeball was awful but can't blame them they don't lmao any better. They are loving the new foods you guys recommended and I'm letting them get there one treat a day from the hubby in hopes to bond some they are pretty aggressive towards him which I assuming is normal and how a wild animal should be.

    So I know this is still a ways down the road however I have noticed we have a decent size wild squirrel population in our yard due to where we live and all the pin oak trees we have some are very agressive/ territorial hey even bark at us when we walk in the yard lol so when it's times the releasing process for the my babies will these wilds run them away out of the yard or bet them up. I think I'm just being a worried momma but I was just curious. I know I shouldn't feed my babies true acorns in the yard but when they get out in the wild will the be able to determine which acorns are ok out there to eat like the wilds.? I just was curious and am starting to already worry about release its amazing how easy these babie steal or heart and we become attached so quickly. Thanks for the help everyone. Bigger cage is almost complete i am excited for them to have tons of climb room and see them play. Btw cava they love love apples they each get one slice a day and just go crazy for it.

    Also does anyone know if the mix nuts bag from squirrels and more is a ok choice of but to give them one a day as a treat the nuts are "Mixed nuts (shell-on) consisting of almonds, filberts and walnuts. These nuts are human quality (meaning high-quality) so you'll be able to munch with your squirrels." Or would the peanut sticks from Henry's healthy pets be a better option..

    Do you feed the wild squirrels in you yard? If so, I would definitely stop now so that more won't move into the area to be near a food source. I hate to say it, but wilds will get aggressive over territory with new releases sometimes. Do you have a lot of trees in your yard? As the time draws closer to release time, it will be a decision you have to make as to whether or not to release in your yard, but you have plenty of time to think about that, so try not to worry too much. I know its hard not to, believe me. But enjoy those little sweeties to the fullest while they are with you. The good thing is, where ever you decide to release, they will have eachother out there.

    Those nuts sound fine to me, as long as you stick with one or no more then two a day. Also be aware that sometimes shelled nuts can cause agression in squirrels, so if you notice that, you may want to cut them out for now.

    Those nuts sound fine, but just make sure to limit nuts as occasional treats, no more then two a day, so they will continue to eat their healthily stuff.

    No we don't feed the wilds we just have tons or trees mostly oak trees in our yard tons and tons of tree on our 11 acres so I figured there should be plenty of room but we do not feed wilds at all they just have tons of food options on our property which is also next the state park I figured it should ok and that my two babies will stick together and they are aggressive already themselves when someone new comes around them or there food they atrack there the cage which I can't say I don't mind as they are wild after all and need to know how to do that. With all the room in our yard and trees I figure we should be ok and they should be able to find there own spot And the wilds leave them alone. I have notice that the boy squirrel as started climbing up on the girls back butt area I don't think it's anything sexual maybe establishing Dominic's maybe..? I also got them a few deer antler pieces and only give one piece of fruit to each of them a day and wanted to start giving one but each but they don't get those till night after they have eaten there healthy greens formula and they are still shredding the rodent blocks they prefer those most times over the fruit

    Oh that's wonderful that you have so much wooded land. With that big of an area, they should have room to spread out even if the wilds do get territorial. Their time in the RC before release will help with the wilding up process too.

    Their behavior does sound like establishing dominance to me. They are too young to be sexually mature and squirrels raised together in captivity rarely ever mate, especially not siblings. I'm glad to hear they are eating so well.

    Yeah with all the trees on our property and park around us I figured they will be fine and still will keep there cage outside for as long as they will need it or want it so they can still come say hi, we dont on moving but if someday that happens they should also still be ok without me by or if that ever happens. I figured with them being siblings they wouldn't be doing that for any sexual or mating purpose and especially with them so young. I'm so happythey are eating so well as well and they are so healthy they can't even be weight anymore they are just to crazy they can't stay still lol I can't wait to get them out of the small wire cage Into the home made cage that's 8ft by 4ft or a little smaller they have so much jumping and claiming on me that I know they are ready for the big one and they are not even really using there heat source anymore but will still provide one. I try to record them playing but they are so wild and fast and most of there playing is jumps off the cage onto mommas head and then chase each other around my body and then back on the cage and my head they are just so crazy it just warms my heart

    I'm glad they like the apples. I buy human nuts in the shell when they're on sale and remove the Brazil nuts (they can't have them) and I would give one a day also (after the stinkers ate their healthy foods). I'm looking forward to seeing them in their new cage. I agree to quit feeding the wilds. I have a pretty large squirrel population as well but there is never any fighting around here. The chipmunks sit one foot away from the grays out in the yard and everyone just tolerates everyone. But I was still worried. When mine were in the release cage every single neighborhood squirrel, it seemed, came onto the deck to check them out. Thankfully Frances was a big old biotch and screamed at them until they got tired of it and left. She now lives in a tree 20 feet from the deck and Basil lives in the front yard, I think. They both still come around but could care less if I'm alive or dead as long as there are nuts on the bottom deck when they get up in the morning.

    Great that puts me a easy I bought them a bag of nuts from Chris"s squirrels and more they are human grade and were pretty cheap a 1lb got $6-9 bucks wasn't bad. They come with almonds, filberts and walnuts all in shells those are all ok for them right and I can just leave them in the shells? I plan on only giving one a day like I do with there fruit I usually give to them right before bed after they ate all healthy greens and formula all day. I'm so excited to see them start playing in the big cage they are so wild. I think my babies will be just fine in wild as they are already super aggressive to everyone or thing that comes in there room besides me the bark and jump at the cage until they leave. We have never feed the wilds and I don't plan on it we just have so many oaks and acorns there plenty for the squirrels, groundhog, Deers, possums and chipmunks all to share and they all seem to all keep to themselves.

    Yes all of those nuts you named are fine to give one a day and yes, you can give the nuts in shell to them - cracking them open is good for their teeth too. Sounds like they are full of energy and I'm sure they will be happy to have more room to romp around in.

    LOL! I used to sit and watch tv with a blanket on for protection while they were out to play and they'd bury pieces of avocado on me, patting it down, smashing it into the blanket. Thanks guys!

    I was able to get past the bars by pushing the camera lens right up against the bars and it take shots in between them, instead of of them.

    That's to funny lol but it's just great see them starting To developer there skills. Pumpkin has taken one of the nibble and one of the full syringes in her mouth and ran off with them in different occasions she then decide do play attack me when I had to take them away lol but it's fun to see them act more like squirrels.

    Hey guys so silly question I noticed Henrys pee pee is a little pink and I haven't seen his sister nurse on him at all, does this look normal? It is a little swollen around it but not the actual penis itself is this because his balls haven't yet dropped? Sorry if this is also an weird questions.. his pee doesn't stink at all and he is going on his own and its a little yellow but not a lot. They seem to pee it up in there cage some much so that they wet two cloth dippers down to the bottom of the cage I usually change them out every feeding which is still 3x a day they eat soo much not close to 20cc each feeding but thats a good thing I guess. I have attached a few more pics of the cuties I hope you guys enough and should have them moved to there big 8x4x4 cage tomorrow after we finish working I will post pics when finished so you guys can help me make sure all looks good. They are climbing like crazy and leaping on everything so this cage should be a issue now for them right close to 9 or 10 wks now I think..

    Oh he looks fine to me as well.
    Are you still stimulating them?
    I stimulate as long as they will allow me to.
    It makes for much less pee pee in their cage.
    How do you like the cloth diapers in the cage?
    I assume they go on only those, right?
