Question 3 sizes of pups

My 2nd Blackbear female (RIP Honey) gave birth to 6 pups, 4 male and 2 females. 2 of the males are smaller, the smallest died due to starvation, as I coudlnt get it to nurse.

I have been told this is a rare litter, as 1 is a Roborski and one is a mix Roborski hamster, as the rest are normal size. The runt, was killed by mom yesterday :o( so I weaned the others fromher to save the other mini. Here is a Pic, Can I get your comments on this event?

I am guessing the Surrogate mom thought the Runt was a different species and detroyed it... It DID have its eyes open when it was killed.


*Pics are awaiting approval, in Small pets section names 3 sizes.*

I immediately weaned the other pups from the Surrogate mom.. the following day, She went in Heat. I guess dealing with puppies for 2 months can get to any mommy hamster. She did raise the orphans nearly 90%. The other pups are fine, the surviving female has the exact Personality of her mom. As do the males.

The Lord and Lady love all their children. Even the cute furrbutts
