Our First BLUE Kit!... I think

Post Number:#1  Unread postby Marie28 » Tue Jun 12, 2018 11:05 am


So our newest Silver fox doe just had 2 kits one is black and the other I'm pretty sure is blue. This is our first blue kit but its possible its a Lilac. Is it to early to tell... any opinions?

Blue and lilac are very hard to tell, even when you have both in the litter. What color were both parents? Youd need both to carry choc and dilute in order to get lilac. And there will be just a rosey hint to a lilac, and to the eyes.

Mom is black (her mom is blue with possible chocolate/lilac genes)
and Dad is blue (with possible chocolate/lilac genes)

I've been looking online but its really hard to tell. It looks sorta rosey but i'm not sure if the pinkish color is skin or fur. The lighting is not the best right now. We will see:]

The eyes are a dead give away when they're older, they will have a reddish tint, especially in the refraction. It sounds like you could have a lilac, and in the pics, I see a little bit of a tint, however it could be lighting. Give the fur a bit more time to grown in, and look again at about two weeks, then the eyes will be open.
