Hamster Babies

Do not disturb the litter for at least 14 days. If the nest is

disturbed the mother may kill the babies and eat them. If one of

the babies gets away from the others, don't worry, the mother will

retrieve it. The cage should be cleaned two weeks after birth and

the babies should be separated from the mother at 28 days.

Also be sure to to separate the Mother and babies from the daddy

hamster. The daddy hamster will harm the babies and the mom always

needs to be with her babies.

hamsters! ~GIRandDONUT{<3}
