Default Re: The Metallica Chronicles

So did I BorisPasha. Some of them were so sweet with their presents that it would have been nice to look back on from time to time.

The other day I worked out that 27 Chinese Hamsters have passed through Metallica Hamstery in the six years that I've been back into hamster keeping. 25 of them have been Normals, 2 have been Dominant Spots and I've not yet had a BEW. One day I'd like a BEW and I still wish I'd have got that lovely girl I saw on the sales table at the SHC Christmas show. My breeding focus is on Normals though and a BEW is not going to help in adding more richness back into the Normal's colour.

Anyway, back to my current lot. Matthew has had to be removed from the show team yet again in the run up to a show as 'the curse of the skin split' is not finished with us yet and Matthew has another one. I was hoping to take him to Bradford Champs but he's very unlikely to be ready in time.

Here he is before he got his skin split hoping for more seeds on Christmas morning...

Juno has decided that she's the new Head Housemaid now that Jessie is gone and spent ages putting her cage right with a bit of creative housekeeping after I'd cleaned it. Here she is showing off her Megazorb mountain...

I thought this one was too cute not to share it...

The Cormes are now bigger than little Juno and she is, once again, the smallest hamster in our hamster room. It's a shame she never really grew into her potential as it would have been lovely to have bred her. Her type is pretty good... she just needs more of it and although she's got white cheek flashes and several white patches on her belly (a fault in showing terms) the rest of her colour is a nice warm brown.

Aww poor Matthew, such a shame he will likely miss the show. I hope he recovers quickly from the skin split.

Juno is just so pretty, that little face melts my heart every time

Matthew did end up missing the show as his fur hadn't really grown back but hopefully he'll be ready for our next show in a couple of weeks time. Here's a photo of the handsome little chap...

Just catching up on the last few postings on your wonderful thread. I'm so glad that you and all the hamily had such a lovely Christmas and the opening of the hams's presents sounds like it was tons of fun and quite entertaining, lol. I'm sorry that Matthew had a skin split and had to miss the show. He is quite the handsome, impressive little fellow indeed. I will be wishing for his complete and speedy recovery. Hopefully, he will be able to compete in the next showing. All the pics of your hamily are SO charming and adorable. I just love their expressive eyes; they all truly melt my heart. You have such a gorgeous hamily, Fluffagrams.

I thought I'd give a little update on everyone now that the four boys from The Cormes have gone off to their new homes.

James: James is now over two and a half and despite having a week in November when I was rather concerned about him, he seems to have picked up and is like a whole new hamster. He's attempted his own version of scatter feeding too which surprised me because he's always been rather reluctant in the past.

Victoria: She's also getting on a bit and will be two at the beginning of April. She's actually developed a lovely rich colour as she's aged and I actually contemplated putting her back on the show team but yesterday I discovered she had a skin split so she probably won't be showing.

Matthew: Matthew is nearly 17 months old and after recovering from his skin split at the beginning of January, went on to develop another one on Valentine's Day... just after I had entered him into the Bath show. He seems to be recovering okay but I'm not sure when or if he'll be showing much.

Juno: Finally Miss Juno has decided to grow a little bit more than just ears and she's actually got a nice rich colour. She's been a busy little bee building tunnels in her cage and has taken on Jessie's role as Chief Seed Distribution Supervisor.

Cora: Cora lost a little bit of condition after being separated from her babies and looked rather mousy for a while but she seems to have picked up again now. She's been a little bit skittish which is why I've not taken her to shows this year but I'm hoping she'll calm down again.

Jack: After being picked on a bit by Alex when he was a bit younger and being separated, little Jack really has begun to thrive. He now weighs in at an impressive 41g which is not only heavier than his father was at that age but also Matthew. He made his show debut last week and did reasonably well but didn't place. He's livelier and more confident than Alex.

Alex: Alex is definitely his father's son... prone to laziness and loves to cuddle. He is notably smaller than his brother Jack but I'm hopeful that he'll hit a later growth spurt like his dad. Alex has attended two shows and came home with some prize cards last week.

Louise: This little lady has been a bit slow to grow but what she lacks in size, she certainly makes up for it in character. She's cheeky, playful and intelligent and I think she'll be the perfect candidate for my attempts at having a 'trick hamster'. Louise also made her show debut last week but placed bottom of the class, despite the judge thinking she was cute.
