I got Ringo about three weeks ago, and if she's a he, she would have testis by now wouldn't she?

I ask this because I just put her into Blinkin's'(girl) cage and she's mounting her and uh....yeah doing that stuff and is that normal for a female? Is it just another way of establishing dominance?

This was very excessive...everytime Blinkin was in sight she went for it. I've never seen that before so I thought it was odd.

Ringo is still a baby and is about 3/4 the size of Blinkin' and she's becoming the dominant one. I think it's funny because she's so little lol.

Yes, a male's testes would have dropped by now. Humping and such is very common dominance behavior in males and females, especially when one female or the other is in heat. My boys seemed to tolerate this from babies better than when the new boys got older, so I don't know if the babe will remain dominant.

(Though my alpha is the smallest in the cage... small man complex or something.)
