I bought them from a chain pet shop which explains it. Too bad. It's been almost 2 weeks and they still hide when I'm in the room. This morning they came out and ran around a bit and ate while I was in the room. As soon as I get near the cage they scamper away. I think it will take a long time to get closer to them. I'm not home most of the day so i think this will make it even more difficult.
I've also noticed that one is much more dominant than the other. The less dominant one has nics out of his ears which he had when I bought him. I'm not sure if there are more nics now as he doesn't let me touch him/get close. I do not see any blood or redness. I've noticed that the other shows dominant behaivour by making chutting noises, walking with a waggle and the other makes a high pitched whine. Occasionally I hear a squeal. As they hide away I can't really keep an eye on this. Is there anything I can do about this - as I'm not able to be close to them.
