How often are you supposed to give veggies to your hamster?
I give my hamster carrots once a week, but is that enough?

I've always given mine 'green' veggies every day. That means parsley, small bits of romaine lettuce, spinach, carrot greens, etc. I only give a very small handful.

Then, a couple times a week she gets a couple carrot slices, a piece of apple, or some other fruit or veggie.

Hope that helps .

Every day seems too much to me. Mine do like brocolli though; sometimes it makes their poops green!

Does the food have to be pesticide free (organic)

That's more of a matter of opinion then anything. I bet you'll get a lot of different answers.

I wouldn't say it's absolutely needed, but I personally buy organic.
