Colors question Hollands

Post Number:#1  Unread postby ozemba » Sat Dec 30, 2017 12:08 pm


Ok. I've got a VM blue doe bred to a blue tort buck, I was expecting a bunch of blue and maybe blue tort babies.

I got two pink babies and three gray babies, and I'm impatient and wondering what the two pink ones might be. With so much bew in her pedigree I've got no idea what she carries, this is her first litter, he has tort and blue tort in his pedigree as far as the eye can see.

I'm still struggling with these genetics, this might be wrong...

So far I've got doe as: aa-B_-C_-dd-E_-Vv
And I've got buck as: aa-B_-C_-dd-ee-VV

So babies have to be self and dilute
I think one of the babies is blue tort, it's hard to tell at the moment (for me, anyway), and if so she carries non-extension...

So she's: aa-B_-C_-dd-Ee-Vv

... So what could the pink kits be?

The gray ones are probably blue. the pink ones are most likely blue tort.

Oh ok. I thought they would be darker as newborns. Still hard to see any color on them as 4 day olds.

One of the blues has a lighter pink belly.

I'm very interested in seeing how these kids turn out.

Yeah, I'm also thinking blue tort, I just didn't expect them to be pink when they were born? Oh well, nice healthy litter for first time mom.

And since I've got this thread going I'm posting the other litter I have too, two harlequins, tricolor, three broken blue(?) torts. Also first time mom, doing great. One of the kits had the scratch, but it's doing very well.

The torts in that tricolor litter look like black torts to me, right now.

Pics! And questions!

I've got the blue tort(?) kits and one of them is mottled kinda? Is this something to do with growing baby fur or will it be semi permanent?
