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
