I know he looks wary.... not well, but the truth is that I just gad him home from a other breeder and there hi had a big fight with another male :cry: I will see if I can get some better pics one day. and yes it is a kink on the tail, but it is from a broken tale, so it is not any thing off a big breeding problem ;)

The dad looks like A^y, just a lighter version. He is overweight, too, which is a good indication.

My guess for the daughter would be dove or champagne tan. Both of these colors can vary quite a bit, and since dad is so light to begin with, it's possible that he has some other dilution going on, which could also make the daughter lighter.

The dad is a fawn with serious hair loss. He must have been a scabby mess at some point. The daughter looks like an argent tan to me, though it's kind of hard to tell in these photos. The girlie is a nice enough looking mousie; can you tell me if she has darker fur, bluish at the root? I love red-eyed dilutes!

Is daddy very old? I have had old men mice lose hair like that.

And yeah, I would say the little girlie is either champ or argente

Yeah, he looks to be old. I've seen older dominant yellow mice who gained weight have sparse hair like that before.
