How will I know if my momma hamie is trying to eat the babies?
im not sure when she had them but I found them a few days ago and I just separated the dad from the rest and I hear alot of the babies squeaking and im not sure if it is something I should worry about or not. ive been a hamster owner for a month and am very new to this.
I'm assuming it's a bit late for this now, but unfortunately you probably won't know until it's too late. Once you touch the babies when they're really young, the mother is more likely to eat them. From what I've experienced and heard, the mother will usually just eat the babies right when they're born so if it's been a few days it shouldn't be anything to worry about. The best thing to do with new hamster babies is just to keep an eye on the situation without disturbing the nest too much so the hamsters (babies and parents) remain calm and unstressed.
