Alright, I know to try treats for socializing, but what treats will work? I've tried yoghurt, different fruits, nuts, and Rice Krispies, but my babies don't seem to like any of it or they'll take a bite and ignore the rest. Any suggestions?

Well, that rather depends. It took my boys getting socialized before they'd start taking things from me.

I think holding them or carrying them with you socializes them quite well.

I agree with Forensic. Hoodie pockets work well for carrying them around! I would also try leaving some old clothes that smell like you on the cage... just make sure it's something that you don't mind getting chewed up. When I got my first two girls, I put some of mine and my boyfriend's clothes on top of their cage, and they warmed up pretty quick.

Lulu should be socializing fairly well then, she still won't stay out of my bed ^^. Thanks for the tips!
