3 of what you tell me are black silver martins (I sure cant tell em apart)
and 1 not white not grey popple ... it's whitish but greyer than Popple was at the same age (2 weeks) and whiter than Dustbunny (chin or some other grey term I haven't learned yet) - what the hoot is this one going to be??

Joy is chinchilla ...

I will NEVER understand rabbit colours ...

woooohooo!!! I gave up with colors. I just call them "black with blacker points" :D

okay okay....I'll try to use the correct color names when I sell the critters. IF I can figure out what the names are :P

What confuses me most about colour terms is that they seem to vary from breed to breed. Kind of makes me glad that I have mutts and don't have to bother with the "correct" term. :roll:

Yup, thats what I really hate, don't understand why they just can't call them all the same thing.

Chestnut=Sandy=Castor=Brown

Ermine=Frosty

I know there's more, just too tired to think of any more.
