Default How much Veg?

Hello,
I have searched on here but haven't managed to find an answer.

How much fresh veg is a good daily amount for a Syrian hamster?

I have always erred on the side of caution but wondered if there was a recommended quantifiable amount?

My little Lois is a recent rescue off gumtree and is around 3 months old, she is still pretty small, smaller than some of my other hamsters at 3 months I think but itís always pretty hard to tell because a full grown one leaves you then you get a little one. Maybe an amount for an adult is better to scale?

Thanks for any help

*sorry is my post is a bit dodgy it's my first reply*

I usually give mine a tablespoon every other day, or a few tablespoons once a week. (so around 1 teaspoon a day would be good, but I wouldn't necessarily go daily)

I think the 'acceptable' amount, is about the size of your fingernail per day, but different people have different opinions. I only give my hamsters small amounts at a time, because they only have small stomachs, and if you give them too much they will just store it and it will go bad.

Right so my conservative amount wasn't too far off then, that's good to know. I just panicked because I have absorbed few new hamster facts recently and I am questioning everything at the moment. I also saw a rescue ham being given a massive (to me) amount of broccoli in a pic which really threw me off

Thanks guys
