HAMSTER MULTIPLICATION
EXPLAINED AND
ILLUSTRATED

THIS ARTICLE IS
INTENDED FOR MARRIED
MALE HAMSTERS ONLY.


By our very nature, we hamsters take seriously the command, 'Be fruitful and multiply.' But the process of adding to the hamster population is not as simple as it might seem. There are very special techniques that must be used. To start, the male must never take his wife for granted. The process of making hamsters begins with whispering sweet nothings into her ear.


Once you have got her interest, snuggle up to her neck and make sure she is relaxed and in a very good mood.







Sometimes it helps to give her a gentle bite on the rear so she'll stand just right for you.



You must embrace her very tenderly, always showing intense respect and sensitivity.










Never be in a hurry, and avoid the rough stuff. You must remember her feelings and let her know you really care.




























If all goes well, you will find that hamster-making is truly a joyful and productive experience. And in exactly sixteen days, you can expect new hamsters, the sons and daughters of you and you wife.




A Litter of Nine Baby Hamsters at 21 days



Newborn hamsters are very tiny, but it takes just three or four days for them to more than double in size. At first they are a thin-skinned red color; then, as their skins thicken, they turn pink. By the fourth day, you can get a vague idea of the coloring - at least whether light or dark. And by the end of the first week, their first baby fur has grown in. Their fur has a shiny look to it when it's new and the coloring is still going to change a little before you can see how they'll look as adults. The babies will come out of the nest occasionally when they reach the 8th or 9th day, but they aren't very good at controlling where they move. The mother will catch them and put them back in the nest. At two weeks, their eyes open and they are all over the cage, even eating real hamster food and drinking from the water bottle. But they still aren't weaned until three weeks.

They will stay with their mother until they reach five weeks. By then it's usually pretty easy to tell gender so the male babies can be in their own cage, while the females - with our without Mama - also need a cage all their own. They still need to socialize at this age, but once they reach maturity at roughly six weeks, they are almost ready to be put in separate cages. All adult hamsters, without excaption, must be housed in their own solitary cages! That's just how it is.
