Fresh Foods for Hamsters
My past animal meals:
Shown above is a fresh food rat meal. Organic steamed carrots, apple, raw organic egg, tomatoes, bell pepper, organic garden salad mix, etc.
Rat meal from early 2017. I didn't have that many rats at the time so this is actually far less food than I'm currently feeding almost daily.
A hamster litter's first meal. Eggs provide essential protein required at this age. This was a large litter. Smaller litters may be offered wheat germ or plain whole oats with a smaller amount of egg.
