I seem to have good luck!
My first ham, Ralph was an adoption at that same Petco. Some kid had left him there because he didn't want him anymore.. I saw him getting bullied (see a trend?) and had to save him... He was a sweetheart. When he died, I got Victini, my Chinese ham, and she has NEVER bit us either! She's quiet and never comes out or begs for love like Ralph did... But she's very calm and comfortable with us holding her.
And Sticky buns is the same way! I got her at the same Petco.. and she had just come in that day (so you would expect her to be super stressed)... she's just so calm! Her first night with us she was running in her wheel like she owned the place. She's curious and is jumpy at times but hasn't thought to bite us.. the second night I had her I put a clean dry washcloth we had slept with the night before in her tank so she could get used to our scent, maybe that helped?
Either way I love her!
