I have two females that come very close to what you're describing,
except that mine are a Mini-Rex and a Netherland Dwarf.
Get them spayed when your vet thinks they're old enough. Until then it
might be a good idea to keep them separated, like keep one in the cage
while the other one gets to roam. Other people here might give you
But get them spayed. That will not only calm them down somewhat (not
totally, if mine are any indication), but it will also make them less
likely to contract uterine cancer. I know how hard it is to watch them
huddle in a corner for a few days in pain after the surgery, but
that's only a few days. Hopefully they'll have a lot longer than that
to look forward to.
