Breeding Campbell's Dwarf Russians
OK, I wanted to clear up a few things before I pick a new breeding pair. I know that you can't breed two mottled red-eyed hamsters, but can you breed:
1. A mottled red-eye to a mottled black-eye?
2. A mottled black-eye to a mottled black-eye?
3. A solid red-eye to a mottled red-eye?
I want to ensure that none of my pups will be anophthalmic (eyeless, toothless whites that live less than 14 days), so I am taking all precautions.
I would really like a male and female, black-eyed mottled, but I have heard that black-eyed mottled Campbell's Dwarf Russian hamsters are hard to find. Anyone have more info on this? I was just going to stop my Pet Kare sometime this week and see what they have, but sometimes they appear black-eyed but they have a red tinge that can sometimes only been seen if you shine a flashlight at them in the dark.
I was also considering purchasing one solid and one mottled... what combination would this give me? I am looking to breed mottled babies, not solids.
