I give him 2 of the big Forti-Diet pellets (1/2" thick and 1/2-5/8" long) plus a bit of fresh vegetable (broccoli, carrot, etc) at night, and then 2 pellets plus a few pumpkin seeds in the morning (he takes them to bed and snacks during his daytime slumber). I also occasionally give him a little Forti-Diet berry puff or Healthy Bits seed treat. And every other week I give him a big juicy cricket.
Enough? Too much?
When I was 12 I remember giving my Sammy huge piles of seed, which he would cram in his cheeks and devour. But I also remember him being a little bit fat.
I’m trying to give Hammy what he needs and not too much.
