I don't even know how good of pets they actually are. I handled them working in the store. what I learned: they are FAST, pregnant ones are MEAN, some don't get along, and some hate being handled. that's all I know.
oh and if looked after they do not smell. >.>
Aww! Hopefully they are tame if you get them from there :) But, either way, as long as you work with them everyday, building their trust, they will let you pick them up. But honestly, they love to crawl on you and play. They are fast. Only my dad gerbil lets me hold him. The daughters just want to run all over me and run lol. Eggo, the only son, wow, he loves to get treats, and be talked to. He does not liked to be touched at all. Keeping a pair is the best, not 3 or 4. And,easier if they are from the same litter. I had momma and 3 of her girls together, but fights started occurring. So I did pairs, and mamma died soon after. Daddy wouldnt accept his son, so they are separate. (I took daddy out right before mamma delivered the second batch) They don't really smell as long as you clean them ,true! :) Good luck :)
