Yes, i'll keep you updated once i know but her order seems to take a long time to arrive.

I have currently six bags of HH under my bed but they're in date till Feb 2022 so they won't go to waste and at only £1.99 a bag they're the same price as a latte from Greggs.

I'd hoard one for just in case.

I wouldn't pay that much, that's a rip off. You'd be better off buying dwarf hamster food from ratrations.

I just did that. I can only get it on Amazon. Although viovet used to sell it and their postage was reasonable - but still bumps the price up. At that price I only got two bags as don’t have much space in the freezer. But they are selling 6 bags for £13 which is more like it (Amazon that is).

Thanks for pointing this out though. I stocked up with hamster food in March but need more and nothing on Zooplus. So Harry Hamster it is.

Wilkos sell HH. Think you can order online from them too if there isn't one close by.

Viovet have it in stock. £2.20 a bag but postage is £4.99. Postage is the same whether you buy one bag or four bags though.

Serendipity, could you specify / recommend which hemp seeds and linseeds please? There are so many different colours and brands - and prices!

The brown linseed is better than the gold but there isn’t that much in it so don’t worry too much, if you can get hemp seeds in the shell, shelling their seeds is much better for them & adds to the enrichment.

I got these. The bag of linseeds will probably last a couple of years! I get the Linwoods shelled hemp seeds and all ours have loved licking them up - they are fluffy and a bit nutty. Haven’t tried the unshelled ones. The Linwood hemp seeds are for humans to put on their breakfast cereal!

Linwoods Shelled Hemp 200 grams (Pack of 2): Amazon.co.uk: Health & Personal Care

Holland and Barrett sell them too if you just want the one bag.
