PLEASE HELP ME
I definitely wouldn't recommend you to breed your hamster. There are already way too many hamsters without homes, why bring more into the world? Can your friend not buy the hamster? Or maybe buy it for his/her birthday (of course with their parents permission if your a kid)? Breeding takes a lot of commitment and can be very stressful. I do believe breeding shortens the lifespan of a hamster. Only breed your hamster if you got if from a certified breeder, and you have records of its genes. Then you know there will be no deformities, etc. I cannot stress enough what a big responsibility it is to breed any animal. Male and female hamsters have the same personalities so why do you want a female?
If you need any hamster advice I can help you! Just PM me! I have kept both Syrians and Russian dwarves. :)
