Default Re: bowl or scatter feed

Personally, Kilian refuses to be scatter fed. He starts to chatter disapprovingly if any food is out of his bowl. *lol* I think ultimately it is up to you and your hamster's personality. I think it would be nice to scatter feed, so that it mimics their wild behaviour. However, Kilian is not having any of it. Hope this helps.

I do a bit of both. Charlie likes both. He knows where his food bowl is and gets a bit anxious if it's not there (eg when I've taken it out to fill it) - but he also gets very excited about finding food in the substrate and foraging for it. So I put half the usual amount in the bowl and scatter the other half. Also occasionally scatter other bits (just small amounts) - pumpkin seeds, grean oats.

I have scatter fed all of my Syrians as they have really enjoyed the challenge of finding their own food, but I wouldn't have done this with my dwarves as they were so lazy and clumsy

I feed my two half in the bowl usually in the morning and then scatter feed the rest of it at night for them to find.

I also do a mixture of both.
