There's definitely so much to learn out there! I learn something new every day

I would say it depends on your hamster, its breed and its personality. My little girl Melonberry was never a burrower. I've kept the substrate high, and even made digging boxes, but she never dug. As she hit the 'elderly' stage I took it from 6 inches to about 3. It saves me money because I need to buy less substrate, and she has no need for it.

If its a new hamster, put the normal amount and watch their behavior. If 6 months go by and they show no interest in burrowing, decide to lower it but give a burrowing box just incase, they may pick up the habit later in life and its good to make sure you leave them the option.

Well couldn't post the Easter Bunny pic because you can barely see Coffee. But my daughter put an egg in Coffee's cage and she was sleeping in it. Here is that picture:
