I don't even know where to begin with identification of this little guy. he is the product of my brindle male Zues and my longest running doe LuLu. I am not entirely sure anymore on LuLu, for the longest time I thought she was a dead ringer for recessive yellow (lethal yellow) but given that she has not birthed a single yellow without brindle markings, I suspect there is something I'm missing with her. Anyway, here are some pictures of the young buck in question. he is 3.5 weeks here. I want to say he's brindle as well, but I have ZERO idea where these long hairs are coming from, as far as I know its not in his genome. ... =3&theater ... =3&theater ... =3&theater ... =3&theater

First off, lethal yellow is incredibly rare in the USA so its almost certainly not that, and recessive yellow is well, recessive so both parents would have to have for it it to be displayed.

Since all the other yellows are brindle it is likely that he is also brindle, just very undermarked and that mum does not carry recessive yellow.

He also seems to be angora, which is recessive too and can be carried for several generations without you knowing it before popping up.

Brindle is dominant so a little from a brindle you would expect 50-100% brindles so I don't think you're missing anything with her in regards to genetics.

It is also possible that dad is a brindle with no markings, since it can vary from no markings to almost all dark. However if you are getting quite a few non brindles in the litter, I would go back to him being recessive yellow
