Well here they are on day 8(?)! The runt is doing very well and has caught up to some of her siblings. The biggest two are just getting bigger lol. Almost all have their fur coverings. Some have these funky looking spots, kind of beige. Can someone tell me what they are called? Also, how soon will a mane start to grow? Mom is a single mane, dad is a mini rex so it is a toss up if they will have a mane. Thanks in advance!

The "beige" looks like a broken tort to me. The sire looks like a broken black otter and the runt looks like the same. The fat kit in the red bucket looks like charlie black otter. Dam looks like some kind of broken agouti. If I'm right about all those you seem to have an interesting mix. Fawns and tort-otter are also possible, and some kits that look otter now (like self or broken self but with white inside the ears) might turn out to be agouti instead.

Thanks so much! I had to look up what all of that meant, lol, but it is VERY helpful!

Here is some updated pictures from yesterday morning....

I was thinking could this other "beige" one be a broken Lynx?

But of course! That's in every bread recipe ever. 'Allow buns to rise until doubled in size!' ;)
