how do hamsters get pregnant

How Do Hamsters Get Pregnant? Hamster Heat Cycles Female hamsters come into estrus (heat) every four days or so (this is the time they will be fertile and receptive to a male). This means the opportunity for your hamster to get pregnant is practically constant.

Can a single hamster get pregnant by itself? It might seem obvious, but like humans, only a female hamster can become pregnant.

How will I know if my hamster is pregnant? You can tell that a hamster is pregnant if she appears to have gain weight. A noticeable bulge in her abdomen just over her hips can be seen days before the delivery. She acts restless and agitated. She hoards more food than usual and begins to add more bedding materials to the nest.

Can hamsters have babies without male? At 4 to 5 weeks, all hamster species are fully weaned and capable of fending for themselves. Hamsters of the Syrian species are normally sexually mature as early as 4 weeks of age—a female Syrian hamster can conceive, and a male Syrian hamster can father a litter.
