Re: older male, baby female
How close do you feel is too close for cages?
See I actually disagree that you cannot keep them near each other. I have kept boys and girls in cages that were near each other for years. Unless she has changed her opinion recently, I know Nancy has also posted on here that her cages are stacked. She has kept boys above, below and in cages next to her girls as well. We both ensure that there are solid barriers, so that there is no chance of any contact between the bars or any chance of escape.
If you are using wire cages, just ensure that there is no chance of escape or that they can reach each other through the bars.
