Hamsters, believe it or not, can eat meat. They enjoy chicken (cooked, unseasoned) as a treat, and tiny amounts of hams (although I don't like feeding them ham). They also LOVE mealworms, another m, apart from Munchkin who is one odd little hamster o.o. So as a very rare treat, feeding your hams a little chicken is a good idea. It is packed full of protein, which i s why it is often suggested for pregnant hamsters, and makes a tasty little titbit.

Don't feed them beef! That is pretty much the only mainstream meat I would say avoid. The rest are fine in small amounts(and most LOVE mealworms!)


  1. That is something I never knew! Will bear that in mind next time I have hamsters! :)

  3. They will eat meat? Didn't think of that.


  4. Mealworms!? YIKES. Blech. I thought they only ate fruits, veggies, and grains.
