My latest Syrian litter the 'Mixies'
Satin Sable x Cream Roan both parents longhaired.
Pixie is again proving to be a fab mum with her second litter, 6 this time.
Here they are now 4 days old....







MOM - popped out for brekky and a cuddle, didn't have chance to get the bowl in !
She's a big girl normally weighing in at well past 200g she's a 'two hand' hamster :lol:



(Please note any photos of pups are taken from outside the cage with zoom and Pixie not disturbed in any way. The happiness of mum and safety of pups come first. That said all my hamsters are daft and used to the camera/having photos taken so they don't pay it any attention anyhow)

and just for scale Syrian Vs Mice...
Here's one of my smaller lads Thunder checking out the new residents on the shelf above.... :p

They're gorgeous!

I do like hammies, i've just heard so many horror stories and the ones i've owned or worked with have always bitten :oops:

They seem to get particularly grumpy if you wake them up!
I also found they tend to suffer a lot from mysterious and cancerous lumps :(

Almost every 'stranger' who has had a baby from my last 2 litters had some kind of hamster-horror story :roll:

Are syrian hamsters the more mellow ones?
All mine are lovely ! :D

They are the 'biggest' ones - meant to be more mellow I guess - dwarfs Russian/Robo/Chinese are all a fair bit smaller though have never had any myself.
