It actually depends. If you get a hamster for the first time you should get a male hamster because it can't get pregnant. If you get a female hamster it is possible it is pregnant. My first hamster, Giselle, is a female and I love her. My friends have a male and I would like to breed her. However, opinions are different for everyone.
Why is my hamster going in circles It share its cage with 1 other hamster and its cage is 7 by 12. Why Everything seems normal on my hamster. HELP?
Hamsters aren't supposed to share cages if there syrians(dwarf hamsters can share a cage very happily). Your hamsters could kill eachother; hamster's nature is to roam alone. However, if you have one male hamster, and one female hamster, this may not apply, as the female can, well, you know, with the male and before you know it.... pop goes the BABIES. Be prepared.
