Self Colours

Black Eyed/Pink Eyed White

This is not truly a "self coloured hamster" as the white is produced by combining a colour with a diluting gene and the Platinum pattern gene. The coat is pure white but may have a few coloured hairs around the head. When a colour with black eyes is used the eyes are black and the ears are flesh but may have some dark spots. When red eyed colours are used the eyes are red and the ears flesh so the hamster has the appearance of an Albino.
