AVERAGE HAMSTER WEIGHTS

AVERAGE HAMSTER WEIGHTS

Its very difficult to determine what a “healthy weight” is with hamsters and often times the owner has to be the judge of whether their hamster is over or under weight. In this video you can see just how wide the size range gets, if your hamster is healthy overall then weight should not be a problem. Weight changes can be used to spot other health problems though so its a good idea to weigh your adult hamster regularly so you know how much they usually weight, then you will be able to spot any changes very easily 🙂 x

Much of the footage in this video shows some of my past hamsters so think carefully before commenting and please try not to ask insensitive questions (ie; what happened to that hamster) Hamsters come and go, my YouTube channel allows me the privilege of being able to keep their memories alive for ever 🙂 x

  1. My winter white is in 2 months and in the process of training so he is having a lot of sunflower seeds (I'm starting to lessen the amount I give him) and he weighs 70g and I'm worried thats to big! What should I do????

  2. My winter white weighs only 22 grams? I am really worried about her! She gets a heap teaspoon of her food mix and a couple of veggies and sometimes something like some chicken or some cottage cheese a couple of tiimes a week.
    Is there anything wrong or is she just a very petit hamster?

  3. Hi I have a winter white hamster who is only 26 grams is that normal because she is only a few months old (I think). I got her on 4-12-15, but did not weigh her until today. I was just wondering if it was normal for her. Thx☺️

  4. My Chinese hamster weighs 24 grams and has just hit the 6 month so I'm starting to get worried. I use hamster harry food mix and use milk and choc drops as treats, with occasional vegetables. I've just ordered in mealworms for added protein, but can you suggest anything to add to my current hamster mix to supplement it to get her weight up? She's otherwise very healthy and does a lot of running! Thanks!
