Default Re: Bradford Champs (National) 18th January 2020

Hamsters in the main show are judged primarily on appearance and how well they conform to a specific standard. The things judges will look at include the colour and markings, the overall body shape and size, the fur quality and coverage and things like the positioning and size of the eyes and ears. Out of the possible 100 points, only 10 are allocated for condition which includes temperament as well as things like bites and length of toenails.

Show hamsters are often more laid back than their pet shop counterparts and are quite content to snooze the day away in a show pen and most exhibitors wouldn’t bring a hamster that wasn’t happy with this.
