Yes, in rodents the babies will often get eaten, especially if there isn't proper space and food requirements.
I wouldn't call it "normal" exactly, but it's certainly not uncommon. There are a number of reasons they might do this. Males will eat offspring because it will bring the female back into estrus sooner and he can mate with her again. Females will eat their offspring if they feel threatened (this is why it's a good idea to remove other hamsters from the cage when a female becomes pregnant); when there is not enough food, water, or space; or if the offspring are sick or weak.
