babies

Well, About geeze um 2 months ago on a spur of the moment thought I went to the local pet store bought a Teddy bear hamster (GT), later that week apparently he had gotten "wet tail" and died.
So I decided to go get another but fell in love with this Cute little Female Dwarf hamster whom I named "Shelby" ( i tend to name my animals after The Ford Mustang) I brought her home set up shop, and then had a bright Idea to go get Another one, One of her tank mates then come Cojah (Cobra) and apparently they didnt get along, so here i am with 2 New Dwarfs that hate each other, so i Moved Cojah into another tank and there they were both happy. which made me happy. Well... about i duno say a week later Cojah hadn't come out of her house so i lifted up the house and was like OMG! a baby. at first i thought she had wet tail but it was just the tiniest baby i'd ever seen, mind you I have never owned a hamster in my life. let a lone a baby., so i did research and read books.. and THEN 2 days later Shelby.. had a litter of 5 babies!! i was pretty upset at the pet store, and called them to give them a piece of my mind. the an "an female tank" has dishing out preg hamsters. apparently didnt sex one of them.. but anyways yet another litter when i just actually wanted 2 hamsters. i ended up 8. but anyways..lol Cojahs baby never grew up! it stayed so tiny at 3 weeks of age it hadn't opened its eyes i didnt know what was wrong with it, she finally ended its life. and Shelbys litter grew up, but a couple died.. i dont know it if was her first litter I tried my best to sex the babies, because remember i had never owned a hamster before, but apparently i had sexed one wrong, and her son (Fuzz butt) mated with her, and NOW i have a litter of 2 week old babies again! im actuallt excited about this litter because the Colors are amazing! im not sure what color they are
One is the normal Campbell Dwarf color Gray with a dorsal, Some are Tan with Red Eyes, couple are Black one with red eyes and another a sliver-ish can anyone shed some light on these colors after my lond story..lol

There was a great website on hamster colors... I just checked it out and it says it's unavailable. It was http://www.geocities.com/aaahamsters

I found this one... not so good... but might help you...

This one has some pics too...

Black with red eyes?!?!?!?! As far as I know, that's genetically impossible, as the gene that causes red eyes, dilutes the black fur too.
