Hey guys,

So I wasn't sure if this is the right place to post this but I'm planning on getting a canary bird (1) and a Syrian Hamster (1) since they prefer living alone.

Now I know Syrian Hamsters are nocturnal while a canary bird goes to sleep once the sun sets.

I live in a small studio flat and I'm usually awake till 1 am watching TV/finishing up some work on my laptop and listening to music at times. I guess I'm more concerned about the Canary bird being distracted by A) tv sounds, songs, etc and B) from the noises the Syrian Hamster would produce such as squeaks/running on its wheel, etc.

I dont have much space to put their cages across the room and would most probably have their cages placed near each other.

Would the sounds distract the Canary bird's sleep or is it fine?

Thank you and sorry once again if this is in the wrong place.

So for the hamster , you can actually train it to be awake during the day and sleep at night . I know it’s not natural by I had my hamster do that when I was younger ( like 7 years ago) and she lived a year longer than she was meant to so it’s not like it affects their health

Thank you for your response. In case I can't train it to do that, would my hamster's noise affect the bird's sleep? Would sounds from the tv/music affect its sleep too?

I’ll do some research for you and see what I can find about canary birds sleeping patterns and what affects them etc and will put it in this thread later on

That’s absolutely fine! I keep finches and had a hamster, and a few unusual pets and they all didn’t bother one another
