    Careless Is it normal for a female to mount another female??

    Soooo i got my two girls a week ago and last night i noticed Ninja showing some dominance with a bum shuffle and a low growl noise, well tonight she has been doing the same but also has tried to mount Pinky. Is this normal amongst females or is it possible they have been sexed wrong.

    Well, you should definitely turn them both over and compare their private parts to make sure they look the same. If they don't, separate them immediately.

    But yes, it'l normal for females to mount other females, especially when they're in heat.

    I have had to put Pinky in a laundry basket for the night and ill have to try source another cage tomorrow (anoying as im trying to save so i can buy a C&C cage)

    Admittedly im the stupid 1 for not knowing better than to believe a pet store worker when i adopted them.

    But so considering i got them at 10 weeks (well thats whati was told) and now they are 11 weeks is there a chance my girl could already be prego?

    Yeah. There's a chance. Guinea Lynx suggests separating males from the mother and sisters around 3 weeks of age. The earliest brother-sister pregnancy they know of is 24 days. Yours have been together for more than twice that amount of time, assuming they're from the same litter (likely). In the words of The Offspring, "You better keep 'em separated."

    Cheers.. yes i have read that... bloody hell, this is exactly what I didn't want... oh well, fingers crossed she isn't and i can get my boy neutered (in few months) so they can share a cage again.

    Uh Oh, what a bummer. I hate to say it but I think the deed is probably done already.
