Ive been raising fancy mice for 2 years now, I recently lost my male so I went to the local petsmart and brought home an agouti (?) Variegated male. With my blue longhair female, they had a litter of 6 babies, 2 didnt make it. I was expecting agoutis and maybe black, but after coat started coming in, I have a black self female, an agouti varie longhair female, and 3 what were once black babies, now are fading. They have a white undercoat, and dark tips to their fur. All three are longhair, 2 boys and 1 girl.
I only have a basic understanding of mice genetics, i did some googling and I was wondering if its the chinchilla gene, maybe pearl or silver grey.. any breeding suggestions to reproduce the gene? Should I breed the daughter back to her father? She is a berkshire-has a white stomach with a headspot.
I will try to upload better pictures, but I'm using a smart phone and it keeps saying most my photos i took are too large to upload.
Thanks in advance for any info!
