Hi All,

Raven has been living in a cage with another female Arwin and a lovely old grandpa Franz.
Raven had a minor surgery to remove a lump which turned out not to be cancer. (phew...)

However its the day after the surgery and her previous female cage mate now seems like she wants to only fight with her.
The 2 have been happy cage mates for over a year.

Im wondering how to re introduce Raven as I think she is being picked on because she is still not at 100% strength.

Thanks
Wayne

You do reintroductions the same way you do first introductions -- neutral space, lots of room, lots of time, back into a thoroughly cleaned cage. But you might want to separate Raven with a divider in the larger cage until she's more recovered. It won't keep you from having to do reintroductions, but she won't be lonely in the meantime.

Thanks for the tip, got a divider up.
Gonna wait till Saturday and see how Raven is.
Then take Saturday to do the intro's.
