VERY un-versed in mouse genetics, and looking to learn. I have 2 mice that I had planned on pairing for their great temperament, but I wanted to teach my kids about the genetics as well, so I started researching. That's when I came across a post that mentioned variegated homozygous is lethal, and some issues with banded and anemia as well. The buck is the long haired gold(yellowish? I'm not sure what color you'd call that)and gray splashed(?) and what looks like banded? And the doe is chocolate marked, banded? I'm so new to this, I don't even know! Any help would be appreciated. I want to know if these are safe to breed, but also about the genetics behind them, so any websites on mouse genetics you could reference for newbies like me would be awesome!
Hopefully the pictures even show up.

Can't see the images and the link freezes. If the mice are just Banded, then it should be fine to breed them.

The Variegated variation is homozygous lethal. Mice that have W/W will die either in the womb or soon after birth. White mice that have W/w will appear as Variegated. To produce more Variegated, you must breed to an non-variegated white mouse.

Your doe looks like a chocolate pied and your buck looks like a red banded or pied (cant see if the band is all the way or not) longhair. So it should be save to breed them :)
