Default Re: Questions about fresh food

I feed fresh veg daily but my hamsters are used to them and come out looking for them when i'm late dishing up. Cucumber is the dwarves firm favourite and they get 2 or 3 tiny pieces (fingernail sized), sometimes a tiny piece of pepper or broccoli but no carrot or fruit. The Robo gets 1 or 2 tiny pieces of the same, he could have carrot but doesn't like it. The Syrian gets more, about 6 tiny pieces and the odd piece of fruit like apple. He also likes leaves like basil, parsley, spinach etc but the others don't.

Introduce fresh food slowly and cut into tiny pieces so they dry up rather than rot if not eaten up. Like humans, hamsters have their preferences and dislikes.
