Default Re: New Hamster and Wheel

Could you get a vertical wheel instead? A lot of hamsters just don't understand how the Flying Saucers work, including my Jasper. She may understand how to use a normal wheel better and they don't take up as much space, meaning more space for enrichment. The other thing with Flying Saucers is they actually don't provide a natural running position for the hamster, meaning their spines can curve.

Personally, I wouldn't put peanut butter on the wheel as it is quite sticky and could get stuck in the fur or pouches. I would let her discover the wheel on her own or just by putting regular treats like seeds up there.
