Post Best food for robo?

Hi guys,

What are some of the best food mixes for roborovski hamsters? What types of food should they be having and what kinds of food should I steer away from? I've been looking for a good hamster mix in the UK for ages but I'm not sure what exactly I'm supposed to be looking for.

I believe that Bunny Dwarf hamster Dream Expert mix is supposed to be a good, overall mix to feed your robos. You can also supplement this with millet and any specified hamster-safe veggies and the occasional bit of fruits and/or nuts. Since robos are not typically prone to having diabetes, your have more choices that you can offer them. Always be sure to check the safe foods list on the wiki portion of HC prior to giving them that specific item of food though.

I think the food dreamtree mentioned is about the best in the UK, you can buy it here at Zooplus. It's a good mix with plenty of variety but is a little low in protein for a young ham but a few mealworms will soon make that up.
You can give fresh veg daily, working up slowly so your ham gets used to it, fruit is ok as an occasional treat but is too acidic for hams to have too often, millet sprays & small seeds like hemp & flax are good along with sunflower & pumpkin seeds or tiny pieces of nut, all in moderation.
