Default how big will a female Syrian get

Right now she is a little wider than my palm and pretty thin I feed her so I'm not sure on how big she will get.

What species is she? How old is she?

Hamster weights & sizes vary a lot, have a look at this thread to get an idea of how big other hams have been.

I think you mean djarian hamster - another name for the Russian dwarfs. Is she from a pet shop? If so, she will be a hybrid. I think I've read on here that they generally grow to be about 50-60g. It's hard to know exactly how much they will grow without knowing how big their parents were as hamsters have growth spurts at different times. You might want to weigh her every week until she is 6 months old and fully grown to track her growth.

Female Syrians tend to be larger than males, but there's still a big range. Syrians are generally 100g-200g, though many will reach over 200g. Pet shop hams tend to be smaller than hamsters from a breeder. For example, the breeder I got my last hamster from has a female who weighs 380g! And many others who are only a bit smaller. As you can see, it's hard to predict the size of any given hamster. The size of their parents will give an indication, as will their current weight and age.

Thank You. I got her from pet smart she is only a little bigger than my palm. She seems to feel like she's getting bigger but is still relatively thin. Also she eats a lot. I don't give her sweet treats. She is really active. Very loving. She makes me happy. She also likes to snuggle and cuddle.

My female Syrian is large. She barely fits a 12" wheel. I'm not sure of her wright as I'm yet to weigh her (only had her 3 weeks). My past Syrian female was a lot smaller, so as people have said, it varies hugely.

What do you need to get to weigh them . My girl is a little longer than my the width of my hand. She is thinking, not bony and really active. She is a little girl when I see some of the pis of syrians you have. She has a good appetite and eats a lot. No potty issues. And she does not stink or get dirty very often I do not use the sand as I'm not sure what to get. My hamster is snuggly and licks me often likes to give nosies. I'm not sure if I'm doing anything wrong . I have only had her a month
