Hi friends! I have a litter that I need a bit of help coloring. Dad is a VM seal with magpie/harlequin, chin, and frosty in his pedigree, (he's aaBbcchlcchlDdEej). Mom is a broken chestnut and I don't know her pedigree but she had orange, chestnut, black and black tort litter mates. I think I have a broken blue, blue Charlie, lilac, frosty, black Charlie...??? The VM black is easy, but I'm not super sure about the rest. Thanks for your help!

The last pic is the one I think is lilac next to a blue kit from another litter.

I'm not sure that most of them are chins since they do not have the light ear lining of an agouti - only one of the first three (the kit in photo #2 and the 3rd from the bottom on photo #4 which I'm guessing is the same kit) has lighter ear linings.
What you're wondering is lilac doesn't appear so to me; it looks more like a sable or tort or maybe blue tort. It looks to be shaded - note the difference in color on ears, tail and feet compared to head and body. Does it have the "racing stripes" on its flanks of a tort?
Anyway, sables develop really strangely. They start out looking like poor/faded blues, then go through a distinctly frosty-tipped phase (I often wish I could stop it there!), then gradually change to that beautiful mocha coloration. I'll attach photos of sables as newborn (next to a cal), about 5 days, and about 2 weeks of age.

Your litter looks a lot like a litter I had that was born in February. I was surprised by my first sable! He was dark gray and now at four months he has dark brown points and lovely sable flanks. The last pic, the darkest kit is the sable point, the broken is a broken sable, but she has stayed pretty light, so thinking she has more chin, the two lighter ones tuned darker at their points too. Dad is a seal and mom is a broken chestnut. Both carries dilute, but no chocolate.
