Talking will my dwarf winter white turn white?

Will Zero turn white this winter? I'm really hoping he does.

Some domestic hams do, some don't. There is no actual way to tell. The colour change is based on the amount of day light NOT temperature. Please don't try and change their coat by restricting light or making them cold as it is very dangerous and they will change colour if they feel it's necessary or if they can.

With hybrids there's no way of knowing what they will do, some do carry that trait & change white, many just change colour but it's nothing to do with the winter change it tends to be more of a gradual change as they age.

I'm really hoping he does! And chesca_27 I would never dream of doing that to a hamster.

I'm sure you wouldn't Culprit! But some people (who aren't members and are just researching) might or just for anyone who doesn't know! Better safe than sorry !

My sister's hybrid changed white within her first few months (which happened to be during winter) and she never changed back to the lovely black, grey and white that she had when we first brought her home.

Because you don't really know what kind of mix you're going to get with a hybrid, it's difficult to say whether Zero will turn white and if he does, whether he'll turn back again.

When I first got Lunar he was white then he went in to his summer coat, but he never changed back to white at all.
