Syrian hamster breeding

Syrian hamster breeding is selective breeding on Syrian hamsters. The practice of breeding requires an understanding of care for the Syrian hamster, knowledge about Syrian hamster variations, a plan selective breeding, scheduling of the female body cycle, the ability to manage a colony of hamsters. Mother hamsters younger than 13 weeks old are to have a high number of babies, which can lead to complications in pregnancy and less healthy births. Mother hamsters which are older than 8 months for their first litter may have other kinds of pregnancy problems. Mating a mother, between 4-6 months old is a standard recommendation; the age of the male hamster to be father is less important, except that young males may have no interest in the female and older male hamsters may not be fertile. Any adult male hamster will always be ready to mate with any female hamster."Satin coat" and "white-bellied" are technical terms among hamster breeders which refer to hamsters with certain genes giving them characteristics which pet owners desire.

When hamster babies with either of these traits are desired breeders make sure that only one and not both hamster parents have one of these characteristics. If both hamster parents have the Satin gene their offspring are to have fur problems including baldness and have poor health. If both hamster parents are white-bellied the offspring are to be born without eyes. There is a certain genetic defect which can give a hamster a kinked tail instead of the usual straight tail; the tail will have a bend which can be felt by touching but is not visible. Hamsters with kinked tails are not bred at all. In hamster shows, hamsters with physical defects are disqualified; this discourages such hamsters from being used in breeding. If a female hamster encounters a male when her estrous cycle is not at the point for mating the two hamsters will be aggressive to each other and could be injured from fighting; when a female hamster is in season to breed her estrous cycle spans four days. Every fourth day between sunset and sunrise she will receptive to mating.

She will be more receptive in the night. In the wild, hamster mating season is spring and summer, so hamster mothers only go into heat in those seasons. In typical domestic settings female hamsters will breed year round; the triggering factors which make year-round breeding are 12-hours of daily light and absence of cold in the winter. Progression of the estrous cycle includes different vaginal discharges. On the morning of the day 1 the female is sexually dormant. In the evening of the first day she will become sexually receptive. On the morning of day 2 the sexually receptive period ends. By the evening of day 2 the female is sexually dormant. At this time the female will have a large discharge of thick white fluid that gives the hamster a particular strong smell. On the morning of day 3 the hamster's discharge will be waxy and by evening the discharge ends. By day 4, the hamster has been sexually dormant since day 2, she may have clear mucous discharge. Day 5 is a repeat of day 1. A female hamster who has had and unsuccessful mating on day 1 can be identified by her regular discharge on days 6 and 10 of this schedule.

When the time is right the breeder introduces male and female hamsters with supervision because of fear of aggression and fighting. They are separated after mating; until this time the hamsters will be in separate housing. The male hamster must not be placed in the home of the female hamster. Either the female may be brought to the male's home, or a small box of neutral space may be outfitted with hamster bedding and presented as the mating area in which the breeder places both hamsters. A male will be ready to mate and not defend himself initially. If the female is not in heat she will attack him, in which case, the hamsters must be separated to try again another time. If the hamsters fight for any other reason they must be separated. If the female is receptive she will run in front of the male a few steps freeze her body; the female exhibits lordosis behavior. In response, the male will groom the female hamster's rear mount the female. Mating lasts several seconds. After mating, the male may groom the female.

He will mount the female again. The mating pair should be left to repeat this for 20-30 minutes or until one of the hamsters loses interest; when supervising the mating, the breeder seeks to separate the hamsters if either becomes aggressive. During mating the male is to bite the back of the female's neck, but if he is overaggressive they may fight. Sometimes the male may get distracted and groom the female's ears or become confused and try to mount the female from the front or side. If necessary, the breeder may poke the male to get his attention, which will prompt the male to try again from the beginning. If the male loses interest in the female without aggression, breeders will separate the hamster. There are established general practices for record keeping in animal breeding; these practices can apply to any breeding program, are applied to Syrian hamster breeding programs. Larger breeding operations certainly must be managed with a digital database. Smaller breeding operations still use paper records.

Minimum record keeping includes the following information: source of animal identification of foundation bloodstock or strain name of person managing animal relevant dates date of birth dates of major interactions, like health care interventions date of acquisition, if acquired from external source in the case of research animals, reference to institutional clearance for research genealogyRecord keeping might include details ab
