Looks like you found it! I wouldn't expect to get an answer though, so its best to post a local ad in your area (online and otherwise).

Welcome to the club! I am so glad that you found our little bit of "hammie world". As Drago and JL said, you might want to do local ads.

Hello and welcome. I hope you find homes for your litter. If you need any help sexing them ready to separate, just shout - there are some experienced breeders on here.

There is some very good information on this Robo breeder's page below. I take it you have taken the Dad robo out of the cage when you found the litter? Apparently the babies can be separated from the Mum at 3 weeks and then the boys need separating from the girls at 4 weeks old. There is also some very good info on how to sex them on that page (second link).

. Oak Farm Roborovskis

So you'll probably need 4 cages/bin cages - maybe 5. Before they can go to their new homes. One cage for Mum, one for Dad, one for the girls and one for the boys. The fifth one spare in case you have a robo you can't sex and that one will need to be separate.


The main thing is to make sure boys and girls are separated at four weeks, or they can mate if left together.

How old are they now? Edit - noticed you said Robo singular so no Dad to separate

Hi Rachel1995 I am from the north of Ireland. Welcome to HC. As others have said you'll find lots of info here to help answer any questions you have and of course just posting any queries too we will all be happy to help and answer according to experience. Hope robo babies are doing well? You may want to check out the part of the forum relating to robos (just go to forum, hamster species and then dwarf robos)

This website also looks pretty good!

In terms of breeding and looking after pups what serendipity has posted looks to be really helpful.
