Default Re: Insects as animal proteins

It's not so much the forums but down to the preferences of the individual hamster.

Most of my Syrians don't like mealworms or insects but they get animal protein from a bit of boiled or scrambled egg.

The Robos and dwarfs like mealworms. I've bought an insect mix of different worms, crickets, grass hoppers etc before but not one of them was keen on it.

I think it's a matter of trying out different things to find out what your hamster likes. If it's rejected give it to the garden birds.

If you decide to feed live meal worms you need to pinch the head off before feeding it to your hamster.
