We tend to buy in hamsters from a very reputable national breeder and look to restock when we get down to our last four. We also tend to take a litter or two off one of the females just to keep the costs down. When we recently found ourselves with four adults left, we weren't unduly worried because in all honesty, hamsters have not been a fast seller over the last few years. Our supplier said it would be a month until they were in our area next. Again we were not worried as selling four hamsters in a month would not be easy. Guess what? We sold those four the next weekend and over the next two weeks, we have five potential customers coming back for a hamster. So for the first time in over 20 years, we don’t have any hamsters for sale and we have a waiting list!
