Default Re: My Syrian Hamster Had Babies!

I rescue and rehome sometimes and don't agree with breeding but that's my view and yours is different which is something i reluctantly accept. Where i live there are so many hobby breeders and worse, backyard breeders who breed for money.

I have heard that hamsters shouldn't have more than three litters. I don't know how many times you intend to breed your hamsters and it's none of my business what you do but keep in mind that you could end up looking for a lot of suitable forever homes for your hamsters.

Maybe more suitable people are looking for hamsters where you live but here it can take weeks or even months to rehome a hamster. The majority of people who want to adopt are not suitable because their cages are too small or they lack good hamster care knowledge.

In the end the hamsters you chose to breed are your responsibility and you need to have the space and money to possibly accommodate a large number of them.

Vet bills don't come cheap either.
