The problem is Syrians ( The teddy bear, panda bear etc) are solitary. Dwarfs ( Russian campbells, Winter White and Robo's) all have the potential to enjoy another of the same species company but this can be very hit or miss.

I was thinking i could put it in their cage once a week, just overnight and then take it out and do the same the the next week. Do you think this is a good amount or should i feed less or more? And the Old mother Hubbard stuff, so it's not safe? Lol sorry I'm a little but confused.
You can give plain boiled chicken, uncooked silken/firm tofu, and the white part of a boiled egg. If you're okay with crickets/mealworms, those can given too. Once a week with the cuttlebone is good. And yeah, the old mother hubbard treat wouldn't be good for the hams because of the tumeric. x_X

thanks, sweetea. Time for some cuttlebone hammies!!!!! lol.
I found this chicken jerky thing that was technically made for ferrets but I was wondering if it would be ok for the hamsters.

http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...uctId=11535479
the ingredients are: chicken, vegetable glycerine and natural flavor

I really want to feed them fresh chicken and stuff just i don't really think my mom wants me to cook an unflavored chicken all the time for the hamsters (and also i don't have that much time. i haven't even started my summer HW and I'm typing this up as i go to Crew practice o.o)

I'll probebly get some mealworms. Do they have to be live? or can they be freeze dried? And I have blocks of Omega One preeze dried brine shrimp that my bettas dont like at all so I was wondering if I would feed them some every now and then because they are high in protein.

thanks!

freeze dried have almost no nutritional value. you can also do a little cheese here and there, It has protein and calcium.

I would not feed them anything freeze dried personally.

Also for protein believe it or not I use to do very high quality dog food ( Small breed) just a piece here and there.

The dog food is a little controversial but i have had hamsters for years and never had any issues.

Just a chime in, but Hazel Hamster by Supreme Petfoods is one of the best choices for daily food. I haven't heard much about their treats, but I would imagine they are just as well-made.

Thanks, briz, I'm planning on getting some Hazel hamster next time i stop by at petsmart.

Elliriyanna, what brand? I've looked for a while but haven't found anything with 100 percent safe ingredients. And how much is a good amount?

Thanks!
