Exclamation One pup out of nest in a tricky place

Hi Everyone,

Mummy hamster was rearranging the bedding in her little house, and while doing that 2 pups crawled out of the nest. 1 went back in the house and 1 crawled around the side of he house and to the back, between the house and plastic wall of the cage. The pups are 4-5 days old.

The mother is taking no notice of the lost pup. How long is it ok for it to be separated? Should I intervene. I've heard people sometimes put the separated pups back with a spoon that as the scent of the cage on it. Should I do this?

I obviously want to avoid getting involved as much as I can...but don't want it to die.

Thanks,

Kasey

Never mind!!
All is ok, the baby is gone and I'm assuming Mum has come to the the rescue!!

Aww that is good - mums usually hear them and come out for them. Pups can call in frequencies that we can't hear as well but mama can. They don't usually come out so young though. I'd make sure you put some small seed mix and tiny chopped cucumber near to the nest so they can get it as they may be hungry. They do start eating solids about 5 days.
