    What do you think?
    could just be dominance in their new territory, have either of them drawn blood? would be very very odd for them to start fighting now assuming they got along in the pet shop. are they generally just following each other around/cornering each other or are they actually fighting all the time?

    did you not get the pet shop owner to check the sex of them before buying the new one? they sound like a pretty crap pet shop tbh if they're keeping brothers and sisters in the same cage

    edit: try giving the cage a good clean then putting them back, the cage probably has been scent marked my Betty so she might see Suzzie as trying to take over her territory so if you clean it out so it doesn't smell like her then they might be ok

    Nope, no blood as far as I can see. They're alright now, sitting next to each other. They arn't fighting all the time, just every now and then.

    Yeah I know! The guy was really thick.

    Me: "Is that one a boy or a girl?"
    Guy: "Its nearly impossible to tell, even a vet would find it hard to tell at their age."
    Me: "Meh, grand... I'll take that one so."

    Thanks so much again, if they don't stop I'll clean them out.

    tiz probably dominance then lol

    the only time you cant really introduce another hamster is when the one is used to living by itself...but since you've only had Betty for a day i cant really see that being the case

    and to sex the hamsters...the boys will generally have quite obvious balls lol, not as obvious as on a syrian but still noticable

    and boys have a scent gland on their belly

    when do we get to see pics? ^_^

    The hamsters are still fighting and I'm really worried. :(

    I saw somewhere though that when you introduce a new hamster they may fight for up to about 12 hours.

    I hope they remember and love each other again!

    did you try cleaning the cage out?

    or stick them in a box or summit and see if they stop fighting on neutral territory, then you'll know if Bettys fighting due to being territorial and if it is then cleaning the cage out should fix the problem
