It does happen more often with dwarves. It can mean they are a bit stressed so be very sure to leave her very quiet and only feed and water. As long as mum is flitting between nests and feeding and cleaning them all they should be OK though she will likely put them together again. If she seem to be totally ignoring a group you may beed to run a clean spoon in the toilet area to get it smelly then scoop the pups and move them to main nest but hold of that till you see if she sorts it out.

Well, it is not uncommon for rodnets to make more than one nest, before giving birth. However it can be sign of stress of having pups in both of them. If she both of them regularly, it is not problem. you lose the pups if she don't feed them, but she is a first time mother and not every animal make good mother, particular the first time.
You could have disturb her while she was moving the pups, in that case she will pick tem up later.

I will definitely be keeping my fingers crossed that Hotdog (love the name, btw) and all six pups thrive. Best of luck to all of you.
