    I think it is the same as Syrians, every 4 days, sure someone will correct me if I've got that wrong.

    With Syrians if you touch their back they stick their tail up in the air and arch their back, not sure about the dwarfs etc.

    I am not sure if dwarfs are the same as Syrians but if they are, females will stick their tale up in the air when her back is stroked and they are in season. Also, female Syrians become infertile around 14 months old and so stop coming into season.

    It's usually every 4 days but can sometimes be as long as every 6 days. You need to keep trying her with a male every day to be certain.
