Default Hamster baby update! And I think I can keep one! :D

I thought the old thread was getting a bit...old. So heres a update on the babies and some questions (yeah I know ive asked like a hundred lol)
They are a lot bigger now! They look kind of like small adult hamsters. I think its time to name them now. (hopefully I wont get too attached!) I named the biggest one (like double as big as the others! Hes adorable and so chubby) Hippo. Yeah weird name but I named him that ever since he was a few days old. he was bigger then the others and he was purple/pink (the "purple" was just grey that looked purple) And thought he looked like a funny hippo XD

Me and my sister named the smallest black one Wilber. Hes smaller then all the rest. Hes particularly adorable.

Oh, and my mom says we can probably keep one! Yayyyyyy! IDK which one I want if I can. I think either Hippo, Wilbur or one of the couple of black and white ones I like. Im so excited! I love them all

I picked them up a few days ago. And then again today (i didnt pick them up for a few days inbetween. I didnt have time) They are so silly They jump out of my hands. There are a few that arent as scared.

Questions: I have a sister. She wants to hold them too. Can we both hold them when they are babies (IDK I just thought maybe they would get different scents)

Do I still have to rub my hands in the dirty stuffing before I touch them?

Do I still have to touch them all every time? Could she still eat them at this point?

Okay, thats it for questions (I just really dont want to accidently make something bad happen to them)

I'd be worried if they looked anything but smaller versions of adult hamsters!

Can't answer your questions with certainty - just wanted to find out how many there were and if you did manage to get pictures (sorry if they're on the other thread). I'd be careful about naming them all though. That'll get you attached to them even more!

Hope mum's doing OK

They sound lovely.
As above be very careful about naming them, years ago I had an unexpected litter from a pet shop ham, I found the babies during cleaning. I touched them while scooping out her bedding, 9 of them survived. I held them from soon after their eyes opened, and they became the tamest hams I've ever owned. When it came to re homing them it didn't go so well, 2 went to my friends little brother, the other 7 stayed. Shouldnt have named them!
1 Syrian hamster: Ruby
R.I.P Spirit, Marshmallow, Cloud, Isabella, Castiel and Mister. No matter how long you were here you are all missed. <3

If your anything like me you spend five minutes with an animal and im like umm its mine i don't wanna leave it please can i keep it lol however if you do get attached the best thing you can tell yourself is that if i keep them all they won't get as much attention from you as they would from someone else that doesn't have as many hamsters.

But i would single out one that you really like normally id pick the runt but it depends which one you feel you like the best at the minute but try and stick to naming that one and talking to it as for the handling etc. im sorry but i don't know and i can't wait for these pics
