eewww little naked babies I was glad guineas came out guineas :p But they aren't ugly :3 lil' pinkies.. But they do grow fast don't they? Lil' pink babies :3 I usually try cleaning around the nest, without mama attacking or being all uptight. (coming from someone who cleaned many rodent's cages with babies in it!)

thanks
i just managed to do that about five minutes ago.
First five minutes was alittle tense but i moved alittle
slower then usual as Momma sniffed my hands and wandered about the tank
unless i accidently moved too fast and scared her into a corner.
Brushed up all the leftovers, gave the corners a light wash with a damp tissue
since all my rags were in the wash lol what luck? lol
She is a picky one compared to the other 5. so i was able to get some lab blocks to go with some seed and afew treats. She does like lettuce
not offered too much.
Needless to say i got it tidier then before lol
She seemed to relax half way through.

she doesn't like lettuce? nonsense!

Yeah I remember working in the store here... they had "feeder hamsters". Usually they are aggressive and you hope they don't bite you because they BITE! lol. Well one clambered into my hand, all friendly... And we were told nice ones can be taken out and sold <3 I took her out, day after she had babies, with TWO nests the silly thing... 9 babies, 2 nests, all survived O_O So I know how hard it is to clean hahaha... she followed my hand around, and I stayed away from the nest. But she did clamber into my hand

the kids were trying to talk me into a hamster but after that one bit me
i was definitely not going to get one atleast not until the kids are alot older.
as cute as they look i just dont feel they are for me lol
I did a pretty good job as far as im concerned lol and yes she did follow me sniffing my fingers as i scraped up some of the seeds she tossed aside all over the tank
Question: Is vitamin drops for gerbils and such good for them ? the mice?

I had a tame hamster. He was cute!! then he became mean and grumpy. my cousins get all the good ones... they never bite, they wander the house like a dog, they beg for food LIKE A DOG xDD even hamsters I worked with, they all turned mean eventually asides from the beautiful breeder pair. Their babies were very friendly too - good genes = good animals xD

I used to work at an exotic animal shelter and they had rats with pinkies. One time I, being inexperienced, stuck my hand in to see the babies, and momma rat bit me!! She didn't pierce skin, so it must have just been a warning bite lol.

Congrats on the little boogers. They are adorable

Aw:) Baby mice! Brings me back to when my sister used to breed them (as a hobby o.O) we had so many mice we didn't know what to do with them!!
Hamsters are a sossy rodent but I always had very tolerant syrians. I don't know about dwarf hams. RATS make a far better kid friendly pet than hamsters. More people need to know that.

Anyways, congrats on the babies. What are you doing with the babies?
