Default Sterling and Franc

Hello everyone! I've got my two little dwarves home and they're currently in a Ferplast Ratatout 80.

Meet Sterling and Franc!

These two brothers were always close to each other when I've bought them so i took them both, both of them have at least 4 hide outs and 3 food bowls but I will try scatter feeding soon.

I've bought Sterling and Franc in the same shop as I've bought Toria, and it seems they have a private breeder for their Hamsters.

Sterling and Franc will be living together in the Ferplast Ratatout 80 but I will be changing their cages and if they ever really fight, I will be seperating them.

I would like to ask for help on tips for two dwarves as more research for them is better than none, I only have one wheel for now but I'll be buying another soon.

Aww, Sterling and Franc are so cute. I look forward to getting to know these two precious hams and seeing more of them after they settle in. Have fun with your little cuties.

Thanks dreamtree. I just couldn't resist taking a photo right away since 4 hours after, they were already in the wheel!
I plan on buying another wheel soon.

Congrats on Sterling and Franc they do look adorable
Look forward to seeing more of them.

I posted a few basic tips in your other thread, if you're unsure about anything though just ask.

Thanks a lot cypher! I do face a problem now, Sterling (the bigger brother) kept squeaking at Franc (the smaller brother) which didn't happen before and only happened 8 hours after, Franc is getting scared but no blood has been drawn but he's approaching carefully now and slowly outside, what should I do?

EDIT: The Ferplast Duna Multy has been set-up but I still don't have any beddings for any of my hamsters but I will be buying an emergency one tomorrow.

EDIT: Another edit, so after 3 hours Sterling stopped squeaking at Franc which made me relieve and they're sleeping together in the house.

They're bound to be a bit unsettled by the move to their new home so that could cause a bit of squeaking & squabbling to begin with, you just need to keep a close eye on them really although they will still sleep together after fighting sometimes so that's not a guarantee that everything is ok. Just see how they go for now.

Thanks cypher, I will keep an eye on both of them.

EDIT: Also should I move them to the Ferplast Duna Multy? The Ratatout is very narrow and barely fits that much room for toys and hides incase they do fight.

Bad news, I had to seperate them as Sterling kept attacking and chasing Franc, and I think it's a bad thing because it would be worse.

EDIT: Since Franc was only here for 1 day and was suppose to be adjusted to his environment, I managed to grab him from the Ferplast Ratatout and seperate their fighting by using a hideout and using a gloves, Franc jumped and fell for about 18 cm from my gloves and tried to escape, I manage to grab him and put him in the empty Ferplast Duna Multy, I bought the emergency wood shavings which are rather small and only about 4 cm of bedding, I'll be adding more once he calms down.

You've done the best thing for them, it may not have turned out as you hoped but most pairs do end up being separated at some point & it probably was just the stress of moving to a new home that upset the balance with your boys so it happened sooner rather than later but they will both live happily alone & I'm sure they'll settle in fine now.

Thanks cypher, I think I should've seperated them sooner, I did borrow Toria's Wheel for now for Franc since they both loved using the hamster wheel and made sure to clean it thoroughly, I will be giving it to Toria back once I buy another wheel in Fressnapf tomorrow.
