Breeding Hamsters PDF Print E-mail

It is important to think ahead before breeding hamsters and not just jump in at the deep end. Consideration must be given to the housing and finding homes or an outlet for the babies. Hamsters can have quite a lot of babies, 15 to 20 is not unknown, although 8 to 12 is normal and when separated from mum another cage will be needed. By four weeks it is recommended that the sexes are separated and this means another cage to find. If homes cannot be found quickly then squabbles may break out and the offenders have to be segregated, so more cages are required. By three months each hamster is likely to need its own cage.
