Default Re: Are these what I think they are?

One copy from each parent. Darcy is banded, and Dante looks to be Dominant spot, although his body is mainly white so he could be banded as well as dominant spot, all the pups will be patterned and silver grey is dominant so all pups will be silver grey with a double pattern because patterns are dominant so they will be banded/dominant spot. You could get other colours, for example if Darcy carries black you could get some blacks in the litter. There could be other colours depending on what they both carry, but we won't be able to know until the pups coats come through.

They may not both carry the Wh gene, but eyeless white pups I've heard can make great pets if the owner is knowledgeable on hamsters. They're blind so they need a special 1 level cage and the toys and accessories must be kept the same (in the same place) at all times because they will create a map of their cage in their minds, which helps them get around better. They can have teeth problems and will most likely need vet visits and regular trimming, and a special diet. Sometimes though it's best to help them to the bridge. I'm not experienced with eyeless whites so hopefully someone who has had to deal with them before will give you more knowledge on them.

Make sure you remove all harmful toys, and the wheel from her cage, give her lots of bedding and substrate so she can build a large nest. I'd clean her completely out now, because it will get very smelly! you won't be able to clean it until pups eyes open. Pups start to eat solid food at around 5 days old, you will need to stock up on the hamster food, as well as protein foods and veggies. Give mild veggies like carrot, peas and broccoli. I've been told gassy vegetables can cause bloat so stay away from those until pups are over 3 weeks old. Start giving cucumber around 1 week old, cut it up quite small and sprinkle near the nest so mum can bring it to the pups. They can have boiled chicken, mealworms, tofu, boiled/scrambled egg and porridge (made with kitten milk or water). They can also have a little cat food and dog food, but I'd give this to them when they start to venture out. When it's near the 15th and 16th day, place a towel over her nest area to give her some privacy and you will have to leave her alone up until the pups eyes have opened which is around 16 days old for the pups.

Mum will also need these foods to help with lactation, good fatty foods like nuts and sunflower seeds will help, as well as veggies and proteins.
