Default Adding a new ham

I currently have a Dwarf and I'm thinking of rescuing a Syrian, they'll be in different cages obviously but in the same room which is pretty small.

I know to only get one out at a time but my question is, will they be ok in the same room together?

They should be fine with each other, provided they don't ever meet during out of cage time. If you currently have a set routine with your dwarf hamster, you might want to adjust it slightly to allow individual playtime for both hamsters.

My dwarf wakes about 10.00 and has 20 minutes out of cage time in his ball and me handling him, he's happy with that so I'm not keen on messing up his schedule.

They'll be able to see each other, will that be a problem?

No problem at all. We have had a Syrian and a robo living in different cages in the same room only a few feet apart. They had different timetables and did not seem to notice each other. Being different species they didn't react to the presence of the other.

That's great!
I've never had two at the same time so I want to make sure I do it right not to cause any stress to my dwarf who's a right lad.
