Does this mean broken magpie?

Post Number:#1  Unread postby TeaTimeBunnies » Mon Jul 02, 2018 9:19 pm


So not long after I posted about correcting someone's answer on social media I took a closer look at one of my does. I thought she was just a broken black, but noticed slight stripe patters really noticable when looking at her back. Anyway she looked potentially like a broken magpie. I decided to test the theory and I bred her to my Japanese harlequin buck. Well 2 days ago 5 kits were born. Now that their fur is coming in I can see there are 4 japanese harlequins and one Tri-color. Based off the other post I made, that Tri-colored kit means she IS in fact a broken magpie right? I could NOT get a Tri-color from a broken black, correct? Picture of my doe

not sure on the genetics really, but she looks just like a broken magpie i bred this year (out of a broken harlequined chinchilla and a japanese harlequin.)

i'd never really seen a broken magpie before but i think i might be a fan of them!

She does look broken magpie to me but you could easily get a tricolor from a broken black, especially if the other parent was a harlequin, as long as the broken black carried non extension or harlequin.
