    Default 6 weeks and 9.5 weeks

    My husband has brought in two more babies around six weeks old. I have one already. She's right around nine and a half weeks old. Would it be ok to put them together? Maybe introduce them through the cages first? Or would this not be a good idea?

    This is a iffy one,could go one way or the other. I would first place their cages right up against each other for a few days so they can smell each other and even touch paws before having full access. It all depends on your older squirrel's' temperament; some at that age are just too snotty to put up with babies , others embrace the joy of being an older sibling. Take it slow.

    Thanks for posting my pics. Is this baby a grey squirrel and would you guess him to be around 6-6.5 weeks old?

    I'd guess 7 weeks +/-.

    Thanks. Yes that's kind of what I started thinking since I've seen him flip his little tail up over his back.
