Breeding Hamsters

When breeding hamsters, we at Elms Pets recommend giving serious consideration to the choice of parents. It is important to ensure that two hamsters have a high chance of producing healthy offspring of the right size and temperament.

Breeding some colours of hamster together may result in the babies developing with no eyes. The average litter size for a Syrian hamster is eight but they have been known to have many more.

The dwarf hamster is slightly smaller, ranging from four to six. It is vital to have plans for these hamsters ready for when they are born.
