Silver Fox Doe & Buck, silver/blue kits?

Post Number:#1  Unread postby Azorean Steve » Mon Dec 19, 2016 3:34 pm


one of my SF does just recently had her first litter. 5 are black as expected and 3 are blue. is this due to a reccessive gene in either the buck or doe or both?

Dilute (blue) is recessive, so both parents must carry it for it to crop up in a litter. :)

Both parents carry it

Blue silver fox are very pretty rabbits (they're trying to get them recognized). Good luck with them
I have shown: argente brun, Belgian hare, Britannia petite, dutch, English spot, Flemish giant, harlequin, Havana, Himalayan, Holland lop, jersey wooly, mini lop, mini rex, netherland dwarf, new Zealand, polish, standard chinchilla, tan, velveteen lop; American & coronet cavies; muffed ice pigeons, parlour tumblers, frillbacks; brahma, dutch chickens; cortunix quail
CZECH FROSTIES ARE NOT CYLINDRICAL THEY ARE JUST COMPACTS WITH A FLAT TOPLINE
