Is Hazel Hamster Tasty Mix ok for a dwarf hamster? I found it at Petco. I read somewhere you can take out the corn & peas to lower sugar.

Hazel hamster should be ok for a dwarf ham, you may find some of the biscuit type bits are a little large for tiny mouths & need breaking up a bit in a pestle & mortar or something.

You should never remove anything from a mix as you will end up with something that is no longer nutritionally balanced or providing what your ham needs, corn & peas aren't that high in sugars & also contain important levels of protein, complex carbs, fibre, vitamins & minerals.

Ok. Good to know. Hopefully Trooper will like it.

My hybrids have the Burgess Dwarf Hamster Harvest which they love, and the food is all smaller pieces so it's a better size for them. They used to have Harry Hamster but they weren't eating a lot of the larger pieces because they were too big.

I plan to order some Burgess Dwarf food after we get through at least 1 of the 2 bags of Hazel Hamster food I bought. I can see what you mean, Trooper is eating it but leaving a lot of the bigger pieces.

You can give the larger pieces a tap in a pestle & mortar to break them up a bit without smashing them to crumbs!
