Yes, you can. However, they have to be compatible. Female keets can be ruthless toward each other, so watch them for trouble and separate them at the first sign of serious fighting. Yes you can. It depends on the birds. Female budgerigars can be very aggressive and territorial. If you plan on getting two females, you should make sure that you have the resources to keep them in separate cages if it becomes necessary. Two females may get along better in a large aviary situation where there are multiple birds of both sexes.

Is it OK to have two winter white dwarf hamsters in the same cage?

NO! If you put them in the same cage they could fight and one of them could end up killing the other. But if its a male and a female and you want to breed them you should make sure the female is in season by smelling her fur. If the fur has a very strong urine odor then she is in season and is ready to mate. ONLY put the female in the MALES cage or the female could kill the male if the male is put into her cage. Only put the female in the males cage for about 20 minutes.
