Color help?

Any guesses for colors on these guys? In some pics it's more obvious then other's, but they all have scattered silvery fur on their rumps. Dad was a black otter that threw at least one silver marten once and mom was a silver marten.

White in the ears is definitely Silver Marten. Scattered white/silver hairs on the sides and rump are desired in the Silver Marten breed.

Tan based, it is common for kits to have stray brown or white hairs. I cannot tell if they are otters or martens from these pictures

Otters will have brown in their white trimmings

I just realized this post was in the wrong spot. I thought I posted it in the color section. Confusing. But so far I am not seeing any hints of brown or tan along the edges of their markings. I'll try to get some belly shots in the morning.

In the mean time if a mod or admin comes across this please move to the right section. ^^;

They still look very white to me. I'm sticking with Silver Marten :)

Ok, I got to looking at the boogers in better lighting and one is for sure an otter. It has light toffee colored rims on its ears and the triangle behind its ears has turned more brown since these pictures. If I had to guess from the original set of pictures it would be the third one down as even there you can see the faint hint of brown behind its ears. The others all have silver colored triangles behind their ears.
