Default flying saucer wheels

You'd need the 12" saucer. Really wouldn't recommend putting it in the cage as it isn't suitable to use as a wheel substitute, meaning you'd need that and a regular wheel in too. The saucer alone takes up about a quarter of a detolf (if you're still going for that cage) and the space can be put to much better use really.

You need a 12” for a Syrian ham. I also agree with mangoandmimi, the 12” is quite big and takes up lots of space in a cage. Best to use it when having play time. I think flying saucers are great wheels and some hams lovebirds them!

12 inches for a Syrian Though because of the space it takes up and that some Syrians struggle to run straight in them, they’re best used for play time only unless your hammy won’t run in an upright wheel.
