they are all Syrians. Ponder has been a bit sluggish of late, but then she is a late riser. I feed them tonnes. Their bowls are never empty. I give them treats of cheese, egg, carrot, and fruits, but I am now in a panic as Ponder is only 50g. She is very small, but not skinny, just tiny. I guess the other two are just about at the lighter end of normal, but I am so worried for her now

My lightest adult dwarf is a rescued Campbells she weights 52 grams

My heaviest is Bubba, he weighs 73 grams. A bit heavy I know but he's massive. Not fat just chunky and in proportion

My average is 60 grams

My Phoebe weighs in at 173g....and then I broke the scales by dropping them!!! (not with Phoebs!) Lol so will have to wait a little bit for robo weights!! Phoebs is a large female syrian, from a rescue but a good sized ham.



Nooboo, I have had syrians weighing in around the 70g mark before (also had dwarves around that weight!), there is a huge variation in the sizes of hamsters dependent on the breeding. Nelson is a well-bred show ham so I'd expect him to be larger than the average pet shop hamster. As long as the hamster is eating well and looks well-covered for it's size (i.e. doesn't look too bony) then I wouldn't worry too much about fattening them up - although of course nutritious treats are always welcome!



50g may well be normal for Ponder if she is of smaller stature, as long as she is fine in herself and not skinny, I wouldn't worry. Are you concerned about anything other than her weight?

I thought she might have wet tail a few days back, but she seems fine now. She has a terrible habit of peeing on her food store. It can't be good for her and she does seem a little sleepy. Then again she then decided to get up today at 10 am for a cuddle, so, she seems fine in her own rather odd way.

I weighed all my Roborovskis today:
Lola: 26g
Shirley: 26g
Pippin: 31g
Merry: 41g
Merry is such a wopper! He's really really round now. I'd appreciate if other people could post weights of their adult male Robos to compare - I think Merry may be going on a diet!

Robo weigh-in day again today, and everyone seems to have lost 2g!! Wonder whether it's the scales rather than the hammies?
Lola: 24g
Shirley: 24g
Merry: 39g
Pippin: 29g
Phoebe is 146g, I think I said somewhere once that she was 173g last time I weighed her, I made a mistake - when I looked in my notebook she was actually 143g. So she's about the same.

Bailey at 4 weeks was 64g and yesterday Monday she was 84g so is growing fast! Nelson has stayed the same at around 150g. I think 2g can be the difference between 'to poo or not to poo' that is the question!

Merry happily unpouched in the little travelling cage as soon as I put him in there - then had to juggle holding him whilst I emptied out the case then re-zeroing the scales before I could put him back in.....cheeky monster

I can see the wee stinker doing that

Roborovski seem to be able to pouch so much but from external appearances you can hardly see a bulge
