Do hamsters need a mate to have babies?
Of course! Hamsters, like all other animals need a mate to breed.
no, they must mate with a male.
Make them mate with each other.
They are both hamsters so they can mate but the babies might not survive.
No, they have to mate with a male hamster. WARNING! Some hamsters can be gay.
no they cant gerbils are different to hamster so no

Sometimes yes, sometimes no. Female hamsters can hold their fertile eggs in until they want to have the babies.
No, hamsters will never have a miraculous virgin birth. There is always one male and one female involved.
Do dwarf hamsters have babies on their owns? ok whatever.. um no, they have to mate or have sex with a male first just like almost - or - every animal on earth
Normally up to 7 in one litter, but they can mate more
The only way to stop your hamsters from having babies to make sure that you keep the two genders separate. Hamsters can mate at only a few weeks old (and yes, brothers and sisters will mate), so you should separate the males from the females as soon as they are old enough to be away from their mother.
I am saving up to buy hamsters so they will have babies. I am doing a lot of research but I am confused. What kind How Many Please answer?
If you want two hamsters to mate then it is up to you what type. Syrian hamsters are very terrotorial and like to live on their own so their is a chance that there will be fighting if you put them together. Russians and dwarfs like to live in pairs so this might be a good idea. Remember you need to think about what you are going to do with the babies because these will… Read More
The best time to mate is most likely winter because they have to have the babies in the womb for a while and then give birth.
NO, of course NOT, even the hamsters need a male partner for mating.
No, hamsters are actually pretty territorial. They often fight with mates.
Most of the time no... but sometimes you really need to. Depends on the breed. Some hamsters will actually become "depressed" if they're not with their mate and others try to kill they're mate!!! YIKES a big difference right?
if by in their own you mean without your help then yes they can if you mean without another hammie to mate with the no
No, they need to mate to have babies.
Hamsters are territorial and sometimes if they get scents of each other they start to fight.Sometimes if your trying to mate your hamsters and they fight chances are they need a different mate or they just don't want to be mated.
yes any kinds of hamsters can mate .
They can, but you should not let them. Inbreeding should prevented since the babies may be still born or deformed.
By putting a girl hamster and a boy hamster together in a cage. Then they will likely mate. Then if you've observed them mate or it has been about 2 weeks, you should separate them, but leave the female with the babies. Do not touch the babies otherwise their mom might kill them and eat them .
Normally, all you need to do is pair a male hamster and a female hamster, both adults (over 2 months old), and they will do the rest. If they are incompatible and constantly fight, then a different mate should be found.
Syrians may have 8 babies each time,they mate every maybe two months so times the days of the year and babies eachh time. hehe x
YES. How else would they continue the species? ;-) But seriously ... I have a pair of dwarf hamsters, and just yesterday ... babies were born! There is a lot of info online ... just google "dwarf hamster"!
DON'T TUCH THEM, if you do the mom will eat them! Try to find a home for them when they are at least 5 weeks old. Separate them by gender when they are at least 4-5 weeks old, if you don't they will mate and you will have ALOT of baby hamsters.DO NOT put baby hamsters with their dad , if you do he will eat them or even mate with the girls.Hope this helps… Read More
It is very important that you do not touch the baby hamsters because then the mother will smell human on them, and she will eat the babies. What you need to do is transfer the babies with a plastic spoon or something to another location. The mother will eat her babies. So you want to keep them separate. After the babies are removed, clean the cage as usual.
Syrian hamsters become an adult at 5 weeks old. This is the age when they need to be separated from their parents as they can mate.
no the parents and babies could mate together and after a while you will need to separate the female babies from the male babies and posibley the mother and father as they will breed again. however you could keep the mother and the female babies together, but the males will need separating no the parents and babies could mate together and after a while you will need to separate the female babies from the male… Read More
Usually the mother of the hamsters wouldn't let them near their babies...
All hamsters can have 5 - 12 babies with the average of 10 babies.
It depends. Syrian and Teddy Bear hamsters will kill each other if they are the SAME gender , even if they are related. There will be less fights if you put hamsters of the opposite gender together to mate. Dwarf hamsters live in groups, so female dwarfs and male dwarfs won't attack each other and will have babies peacefully.
They need their space the mom will fight with the other one if she feels the need to protect her nest, when she starts to build it.
Yes, you must have a male and female.
Any kind of hamster usually has 4-8 babies at a time, but hamsters can have up to 18 babies at a time.
mother hamsters don't eat their babies at all she help them to become adult hamsters
Winter White hamsters mate in the spring like most animals
No, much like dogs and cats, hamsters can mate with different types of hamsters.
All hamsters can smell (probobly because they need to be cleaned out) but sometimes FEMALE hamsters can have a musky smell about them when they are on heat. (when they are ready to mate basically!!) hope i helped ox
Absolutely not. Even if they do not fight while observed, the natural instinct of these animals will eventually show. Separate male and female every time after they mate, and especially after the babies are born.
Once it is 3 weeks old, and you better take them out then, or you'll end up with even more babies, as hamsters can mate at 3 weeks old. Don't take them out before then though. Hamdoc
yeah, cause hamsters doesn't like to live with another hamsters. sometimes the hamster may be too kind and will live with his hamster mate. What i prefer is to make live in separate cages.
Once they mate, yes.
an animal that does not need a mate to produce and have children is a lizard and a snail and their are many more but at this point i do not know.
they usually mate in a bed jk they mate in their cage
hamsters can mate at 6 weeks after birth but they shouldn't until they are at least they are 3 months old.
yeah of course they can hamsters can mate with all different hamsters
What should i do I am getting to hamsters if they mate and she has babies should i get them out of the cage immediately so she doesn't eat them?
If she does have babies, take the male out so she WON'T eat them. She may get stressed. Also, don't get the baby hamsters out of the cage. They will probably die, and if you put them back in the cage, the mother hamster may eat them. Just watch the baby hamsters and the mother hamster. Hope this helped. DON'T TAKE THE BABIES OUT OF THE CAGE!!!!! With out the mom the babies will die… Read More
