In Reply to: HELP!! MY NEWLY GREEN CHERK ADOPTED BABY IS COMING HOME SATURADY ! ANY ADVICE posted by Angela on Fri, Jun 28 2013 at 12:04 AM CDT:
I previously had a GCC that I rescued and had no idea of his age. He passed away a couple of months ago and I was so sad that I got another one, a 6 month old baby. I was a little lost as to what to do because they were so different.
What I did do for the first day was leave her alone. I let her get used to her cage and environment. I'd talk to her but didn't try to take her out. The next few days I went easy with her and let her come out on her own and only kept her out for 10 or 15 minutes at a time. I'd walk her around the house, let her take it in, just get used to everything.
It's been 8 weeks now and she's running the house.
I think patience is the best thing to start. The two of you will get used to each other and things will fall into place.
