If you have two or more golden (Syrian) hamsters, you should house them separately because they easily get into fights even with their siblings. Aggressive behavior usually breaks out between siblings when they are about 10 weeks of age. When adult males are placed in the same enclosure, they can fight each other to death, if left without any human intervention.
You may notice that your hamsters sleep most of the day and becomes more active as dusk approaches. This is because they are nocturnal creatures. Hamster cages should be spacious enough to allow them to engage in natural instincts and behavior. Place their cages in parts of the house where there is less traffic so they won’t be disturbed as they sleep.
Upon maturity, female hamsters return into heat every 4 days if they fail to get pregnant. If you have no plans of breeding your hamsters, make sure to separate males and females in separate enclosures.
Be sure to have your hamsters checked by a veterinary clinic. Visit this website for more pet’s care information.
