Winter White hamsters
Hams Hamstery is run by Adrian Dornford-Smith and Rachel Cooper. Our particular
interests are the use of Mendelian genetics in hamster breeding and the further
development of patterned hamsters.
sell pedigree hamsters excess to our requirements direct to the public and to
local pet shops. The price of our pedigree hamsters is currently £12.00
each. Every hamster comes complete with a full 4 generation pedigree and care
cost of shipping hamsters is prohibitive, but if you live locally to us we would

arranging a visit.
