Breeding- What To Do After The Hamster Has Given Birth

  • cover the cage to give it more privacy
  • DON'T touch the babies too soon. (I know the temptation to touch them is very high :)
  • Give plenty of dry food and water for them
  • Leave them alone till they are older
  • Try not to change the cage ( i know it stinks, but the mother might eat the baby if you do that

strange question? I bought a female hamster at the pet store that female was pregnant and already had her pups, and has not been housed with any other males, how can she be pregnant again?? I feel that is impossible, but she is super fat again. can hamster get pregnant by more then one male and have different litter 7 weeks apart?????
