How many babies do hamsters have?

My hamster is having her babies and I have no idea how many to expect.

Hamsters can have up to 20 babies. Please don't breed her again. It can be fatal to both mum and babies, and there are plenty up for adoption.

The average litter will be between 8 and 10 pups, although hamsters can have litters as large as 20. Hamsters tend to birth their pups with an approximate fifteen minute pause between each, and birthing typically takes around two hours.

There isn't exact numbers it kinda depends on the species of hamster. Usually they will have 6-10 but can have up to 14. Don't touch them after they are born and it is also common for the mother to eat them or keep them in her cheek.
