Breeding! It’s harder than you think. I honestly skeptically question anyone who has ‘accidental litters’ because breeding is actually not that easy.
At the moment I’ve female Syrians who won’t stand, female Chinese hamsters that won’t take, male Roborovskis that want to only hold hands. What’s going on??
Autumn. That’s the short answer. The shift to the colder nights and shorter days means I’m playing catch up with my daylight bulb and heating to make sure the hams don’t just decide to stop breeding altogether for the winter.
What is the best virtue that a breeder can have? Patience. What is it that I most lack?…yup.
Hopefully, I’ll have some babies coming soon.
