A syrian hamster pregnancy will last 16 days, with a dwarf hamster pregnancy lasts 18-21 days. At this time, the hamsters usually do not like to be handled, and might bite. If yours does not bite, then it's comfortable with being handled.

A few days before birth, complete the cage thoroughly as you won't be able to clean it for another 2-3 weeks. Make sure there is lots of bedding, remove the father, and keep the cage in a quiet room with nothing to stress the mother.

It is advisable to not be in the room, or near the cage, when the hamster is birthing. This is very stressful on the mother, and if she gets too stressed she will kill the babies. Just make sure you provide fruit and drink for the mother, and don't go near the cage for two weeks unless it is for this purpose. It won't take long for the delivery to actually happen, a few hours.

Pregnancy in hamsters can last for 16-18 days and visible signs of pregnancy appear after 10 days of pregnancy. At the end of gestation, female hamster become more aggressive and show nesting behavior. Labor in hamsters can last for 30-90 minutes during which whole litter is born. Total time take for delivery of a litter depends upon litter size.

It is not normal for hamsters to take so long while delivering a little hamster. If you are sure that it is the right times of its delivery then consult a vet. There can be some complication which is very rare regarding a hamster. It should maximum take a weak after getting fat due to pregnancy to deliver young ones. It is suggested to keep the male hamster away in a separate cage when these young ones come out of their mother's womb.
