Default Re: Which food should I get from Zooplus?

I wouldn't use Zooplus food as the main food, but I bought the JR Farm Food for Hamsters, as a natural treat mix, which she us normally given a pinch a week, but the protein levels are low, but I normally scatter this around the cage. But I initially bought this to try my hamster on mealworms, millet and nibble ears (wheat corn husks), as I didnt want to buy large bags to try.

I'd also suggest Harry Hamster.

Harry Hamster is on the [email protected] website, it's normally £2.00, but currently it's on offer at £1.50 until the 17th May. It's the [email protected] own brand which is £3.00.

It is a bit odd as Zooplus do some quite good dwarf ham food mixes but for a syrian I'd go with what the others have said, shop elsewhere & maybe just stick with Harry Hamster.

For a Syrian I would say Burgess Supahamster and perhaps mix some packet nuts into this. Lidl & Aldi sell small bags of mixed nuts and dried fruits like cranberry.

For any dwarf hamster, I would say Burgess Dwarf food. They adore the millet seeds within this mix. You can also add in various other things like the crushed nuts.

I also recommend the Science Selective hamster biscuits as a whole food although these are heart-shaped biscuits that are handy for breaking up and adding to any other mix or using as a palliative care food as it can be softened.

The JR Farm Dwarf food on Zooplus is good. I`ve used it for a while now but can`t justify the prices on limited spend on that site when I only have one dwarf hamster! So the Burgess Dwarf food is the next best thing. x

I personally haven't found a single hamster mix that is completely suitable.

For my Syrian, I use Burgess Supa Hamster Harvest as a base.
I removed all the corn (except a few small flake pieces). Whenever I feed her I add a couple of meal worms for the added protein and a couple of Science Selective hamster pellets. Instead of filling up a whole dish I scatter feed a small handful daily. I also give dried veg and millet as treats for taming.

For my two dwarves, I use Burgess Dwarf Hamster Harvest. I remove all of the corn because they don't like it, and I remove the majority of the peas because they're sugary and they tend to eat these and ignore the rest. This mix is completely different and includes more smaller seeds than the regular Hamster Harvest. I add one mealworm per day and one crushed Science Selective per day plus the same treats as my Syrian gets for taming. I put a smaller handful (roughly a teaspoon) of the mix per day in a small dish as they are still quite new to our home and I am still monitoring their food intake. They do tend to ignore the small hay pellets though.
