For each of the two shows i will be taking 1 u8 week doe PEW and 1 u8 week buck Cream. I am looking forward to the shows and I am hoping to do better in the Peterborough show unlike last time. At Swindon I got 1st in the PEW class last year so hoping to do it again but hopefully get somewhere in the challenges next.

I didn't hang around much at the mice (not my choice!!) so unfortunately I didnt really see anyone. I did manage to get a third with one rump white although in fairness there was only 4 entries and the fourth one was also mine :lol: The best thing was showing my mice to the rump white experts and getting some very helpful tips and literally being show exactly what is wrong and what its meant to look like which is so valuable to me at this stage.
Anyway, Im hoping that I am going to make it to Swindon on the 25th and certainly will be there and hope to see and chat to lots more people.

I use to breed Blue Dutch. I was advised to go for chocolate and black, because i can put them together and get the two colours in a litters. I would like to see what cinnamons, liliacs etc would be like!!! I heard that chocolate have bigger ears since other dutch have small ears? is that true?

I can't say as I have noticed a significant differance in ear size but in any case if winning is what you are interested in then ears won't play a big part.If winning is important then you have the best chance with blacks followed by chocs/blues.If showing/winning is not so important to you then experimenting with other colours is fine.Fawns,lilacs and agoutis occasionally appear on the show bench but are more likely to be penalised for poor colour.
