Help please!!!?

I got my hamster two weeks ago and everything’s been great, two russian dwarfs. Sleep together and get alone fine just fight a little over a bit of food. I left for a weekend at the caravans and left them home with plenty of food. come back and one of them is absolutely mental!! she’s scared of everything and everyone screams and squeals if u go near her or try touch her or anything. when the other hamster goes near her as they digging around she goes crazy and try’s fighting her off. she throws herself on her back and screams. don’t know what to do i really need help. i’ve had hamsters before but nothing like this has ever happened. we were thinking she could be nesting but she is acting so so different 😭😭

    Sounds like they need to be separated and the now scared one will need to get back to the beginning.

    A video how you may have to treat your hammy back to socializing:

    First will be separating, then adjusting to the new home.

    i’ve separated them i’m not sure who to put in the smaller cage either the one that’s having these problems or the one that’s completely fine!! that’s the one they were both in but the not right one is in it we can’t get her out also she’s sat in the same spot for about 15-20 mins now
