Question taming pairs?

I just wanted to know if anyone knew how to go about taming pairs of hamsters. I've had my two Russian Campbell hamsters for 4 days now and they seem pretty settled now but I'm not going to start taming quiet yet.

I just wanted to know how I would go about doing this, do I try to tame them together or do I tame them individually.

sorry I'm a bit of a newbie when it comes to pairs of hamsters

Default Re: taming pairs?

You need to tame them & interact with them together, keep them together at all times.
I would begin by just introducing your hand into the cage & letting them get used to that, once they're comfortable with your hand then get them out (use a mug, tube or something they will climb into if need be) & put both in either a taming bin or play pen for taming.

They like treats for motivation like sunflower seeds, millet spray, dried mealworms and also dried crickets. Go slow most of the time they like to explore their new environment
