Welp Ash has started spraying & it's driving me batty... He's really only doing it when he's out & about and trying to get into Hunny's side of the pen & at night when we're sleeping... I wake up to find he's sprayed all over the place.  We have an appt next Friday for his pre-neuter check up and I'm hoping the vet will tell me he can be fixed ASAP... She did Hunny's spay at 16 weeks cause of her size do you think she'll wanna wait till then for him too?? I read somewhere online that male's can be done at an earlier age... Does anyone know if this is true? 

Not only the spraying thing but I'm dying to have them bonded... they get along great when he's not trying to violate her and spliting playtime is getting difficult esp with Hunny being so use to being free roam...

I think as long as the bun's manhood has dropped you're good to go. =]

Goodness, I hope so... Things have really gotten messy the past couple nights. Ash's behavior has had an effect on Hunny & for the past few nights not only has she moved her litter box all over her pen but has started pooping everywhere!! I'm thinking it's cause Ash is spraying her thru the bars & she's not liking having his smell all up inside her normally spotless side of the pen... Also the past couple mornings when I woke up Hunny has been on the opposite side of the pen, as far away from Ash as she can get. Which up until a few days ago was very different, normally they would be laying next to each other. So today I've moved some stuff around, I put both their litter boxes on the opposite sides and moved Ash's hidey box where his box was in hopes that that will encourage him to not wanna use that corner as a potty... I'm off to work today so Hunny will have a peaceful day relaxing under the table while I'm gone & hopefully Ash will adjust to his pen being switched up.

Last night & this morning were both much better... We let Hunny sleep out of the pen last night, I figured since we let her roam free all day even when we are working then what's the harm in letting her be out at night while we sleep... The place is bun proofed so... she musta slept under the table or in her willow chest last night & heard me get up cause she was waiting outside the bathroom from me. Her pen still had some stray marking poops but they were easy to sweep up & Ash hadn't sprayed all night UNTIL Hunny went straight up to him while I was sweeping out the pen then SPLASH! But I was a quick wipe up, so def a better morning.

The age of the procedure depends on the vet once he's ready. A more experienced vet will do it sooner. But in general, a male is easier to do than a spay for a female. Ask your vet, and call other exotics if you want to compare.

Yay, Ash's neuter is scheduled for the 19th! Thank the heavens, lol. Dr. Good said that with his hormones raging the way I described he was more then ready... she would've done it this week coming week but she was fully booked so we will be patient and wait. At least I know that he won't be in hormonal over drive for much longer.

On a side note - he's healthy, teeth & ears look good & putting on weight... already 6lbs.
Hunny's weight gain has seemed to slow down, she gained less then a pound in 6 weeks... but the doc was pleased with her appearance as well as her teeth & ears. Feels good to know my babies are doing so well -
