Seed Mix

~ Higgins Sunburst ~

In addition to lab blocks, hamsters should be fed a high-quality seed mix. This should be fed several times a week by scattering it throughout the cage. Scatter feeding stimulates your hamster’s natural foraging instinct and serves as entertainment. The best seed mix readily available in the USA is Higgins Sunburst (for hamsters and gerbils). This food can be found at Petco and many smaller pet stores as well as ordered online. Another good choice which has slightly less variety is Higgins Vita Garden (for hamsters and gerbils).
