I was wondering if people could tell me when their hamsters stopped growing? Patro'n was born on 3/30/2016 and from what I've heard should be fully grown. She does seem small though.

I'm not sure if Sweep has stopped growing or not! I thought they were meant to stop at about 6 months old but I took Sweep to a show last month and just before that he was 165g. I took him to the vet the other day and he was 210g - and looks visabily bigger! He's now around 7 months old ...!

I thought they were fully grown (ie adult size) at 6 to 8 weeks old, but I believe they can still grow a bit after that. There's a difference between growing and putting on weight though lol! I'd have thought Patro'n would be fully grown by now. Our Syrian grew quite a bit in the first 3 weeks (by which time he was about 9 weeks old) and didn't really grow after that. The main thing is they have enough protein in the first year as they really need it.

Most are fully grown around 6 months, some may stop growing a little earlier some a little later but I think you can take that as an average.

Ok, then I am looking at the end of September. I am happy about that as since she was gone 4-5 days, was very concerned about her growth, etc.
