Have got 2 litters and one more due anytime soon.

First litter:
Paired up my Blue lad Feral to his Black sibling Lucy-fer
- with a view to broken marked hairless.
There's ONE broken marked baby in there so least I know they both def. carry broken from mom.
Fingers super crossed this little pirate babe turns out hairless !


Rest of the pile are Blacks and Blues I think.

Second litter:
Not exactly planned.
Acquired 3 hairless girls (will go post some pics these ladies are lovely!)
One was already pregnant - from someone who had some of my mice previously.
SO the father is actually Ferals cream brother.
These guys are Xmas babies born on Christmas night.

Third one due is my Red eyed white girl Angel
- slightly off white = Cream ??

Put back to Fuzzy-Hairless dad Halo and due to pop anytime soon.

Bit of a baby boom over here ATM !

you can spot the hairless from very young by looking at their whiskers, a hairless/fuzzy will have ether no whiskers or very tight to wavy ones ( depending on the coat they will end up having)

I could never get marked hairless but have a lovely group of marked fuzzys/sheepy ( i say sheepy as they are beond fuzzy and look like sheep that need sheering lol)

All mine are fuzzy-hairless here at the minute rather than 'true' hairless.

2 brokens but one is VERY light and doesn't photograph well with my phone cam.

I like pink hairless /fuzzies the best.Have you seen any hairless hamsters yet?I haven't but apparently they are out there.
Only in photos for the main.
Years ago I did but he was only hairless due to health / allergy issues.

The Americans have the proper hairless gene to play with but not seen or heard of that over here as yet. Believe there are various health issues as with other hairless animals though.

Hairless or rather fuzzy hairless could be being produced somewhere, not complicated.
Don't think the majority of those in the Hamster fancy would be keen on the idea mind.

I have to admit to being a little freaked out by hairless animals, especially hairless mice!!

If anyone has seen the film 'Witches' with Angelica Housten in it will know why... damn that film used to scare me as a kid!

At least one regional club (The Yorkshire Rat Club) has put on a special class for hairless in the past, Sarah. Dumbo rats caused a hell of a controversy when they first appeared on the scene too. LSCMRC used to have a special unstandardised class where dumbos could be shown as the NFRS had refused to allow them, sometimes they had a different judge from the main show though ;) Now there are some really good examples out there that are rightly winning top honours at shows.
