Default Re: Huge food stash

Hamsters don't hibernate, if they get too cold they can go into a state of torpor & if not woken & warmed up will die. Make sure the room stays around 18-20C day & night to avoid any problems like that.
A larger than normal food stash in winter is just natural behaviour, even when the room is warm they respond to the change in daylight hours & know it's winter, poo in the stash is ok, they eat some of that anyway, it's only if they pee on it you need to remove & replace it really.
