Getting Syrian hamsters. Advice?
One of my co-workers bought her children a Syrian hamster 2 weeks ago. 3 days ago, they woke up to find that the hamster had given birth to 12 babies!
So far, the babies seem to be doing really well. However, the family does not want to keep them. Knowing that I'm an animal lover, she asked if I'd be interested in taking a couple.
Ideally, I'd like to take two. (We have two of everything: rats, cats, rabbits.) Do Syrian hamsters like to have a cagemate? If so, what's an easier bonding relationship? Male/male? or Female/female?
Finally, at what age should they be separated from their mom?
Thanks, in advance, for the advice!
