Vectis Hamstery and Exotics

Exhibitor and Breeder of Chinese Hamsters, Syrian Hamsters and Duprasi

Current Litters

Vectis Hamstery breeds several litters each year. The breeding code can be found here. Vectis also sometimes has rescue hamsters available.

Enquiries about rehoming babies are welcome. Please note that Vectis Hamstery does not ship or courier hamsters to new homes either in the UK or abroad.

Baby hamsters and duprasi will be rehomed with an information pack including care sheet, pedigree, club membership form, food sample and treat pack.

The 2017 Vectis litters with babies available, both born and due, can be found on this page. Please read down for information on each of the litters, divided by species.

Due to an increase in enquiries and a temporary reduction in hamstery admin time, there is a delay in replying to emails and contact forms. Please be patient - replies will be sent!
