Shurdington Hamster Show

Story location: Home / Blog / Hamsters /
20/Oct/2007

We went to the Shurdington Hamster Show, near Cheltenham. We took the Quail with us, because there were a few people who had expressed an interest in meeting them.

They turned out to be one of the main attractions there - most people popped over to take a look at them. We have now chosen names for them all. Our original 3 are Waylon and Rose, and the third (aka Scaredy Quail) is now Dan Quail.

Our new quail are Daisy (which was the name of one of our original quail til we found out she was a he) and Maggie (short for Margaret Flapcher - I know, terrible name).

We took Hank & Peggy and Vande & Graaff along to enter into the show. Vande was a last minute decision. He had had an infected scent gland, which looked like some kind of red cauliflower growth on his belly. We got some anti-biotic from the vets but it didn't seem to be making any difference. A few days ago it magically disappeared. We're not sure if it fell off or he gnawed it off but it now looks fairly normal.
