Welcome to Grantabrugge Hamstery

The Palms

The Palms were born to Emma and Sid on 24th March 2013 (Palm Sunday).

The litter had been intended to produce yellow or honey hamsters of both sexes (some Ghost or Melanistic), and also black, cinnamon, dove or golden males and female tortoiseshell versions of any of those colours. All of the pups would be Longhaired and would carry cinnamon (p) and black (a).

What actually happened is that Sid turned out to be carrying Cream (e), which interacted with the known Cream carried by Emma to produce a surprise Red Eyed Cream female pup and a Red Eyed Cream roan male pup. The two largest pups in the litter were a pair of Golden brothers who were so similar from birth that they may have been identical twins as well as littermates. The other pups were a Cinnamon male, a Melanistic (Ghost) Yellow female and a Ghost Yellow male, although the latter two of these had some white patterning on the rear part of their bodies which was unexpected - potentially this was either a very unusual interaction of the Roan (Wh) Whitebelly gene from their mother and a carried Cream expressing some Roan patterning in an otherwise Yellow-based hamster, or an example of Dominant Spot (Ds) occurring from further back in their pedigrees having had so little expression that it was missed in the intervening generations.
