On the other hand the 2 babies are so cute and have daddy's giant ears. I will post pics within the next few hours.

It is practically impossible to hand rear such young pups. They need the mix thickened with something like baby rice as hamster milk is very thick and not like kitten milk. You have a better chance with slightly older pups that have had some feeding from mum but even then it is very hard. The also need kept warm and cleaned all over especially the milk on their faces and paws and around the vents. I wish you luck and I'm sorry for your losses.

Thanks Souffle, I know the survival chances are very low, but i will still try.. The older litters mom wouldn't accept them (As expected) as they are much younger than her own and she wouldn't go near them. There is 10.

I hope the pups will survive, how heartbreaking for you especially after only having 2 surviving pups from the first litter

I put them with the mom of the first litter. I think she has lactating issues because 5 of 10 are dead. I hate this.
