Chestnut kit--i need to justify keeping her!

I have a sweet little chestnut, is the probability of her giving me mostly chestnuts high? Her mother is a black tort and father is a sable chinchilla. What would you all recommend i breed her to, to get something other than chestnut? (I know i post a lot, but i have so many questions!! Hahaha)

Because her parents are tort and sable chin, she probably carries self, either sable/himi or rew, and non extension. So if you breed to anything that has any of those genes (like tort, sallander, black, orange, harlequin, sable, etc) you're pretty likely to get some interesting colors. Still; chestnut will be the most likely outcome for each kit, just comparing the different colors, but you have a good chance of getting a rainbow litter from her.
