What is the genotype of argente cream, and what does it look like? I recently stumbled across one of mine that *might* be argente cream, and since I bred her myself, I know what some of her genetics are.

Argente Creme is A/at cch/cch p/p... basically a mix of chinchilla and argente.

I saw your previous post, and i'm afraid a black tan and siamese wouldn't make an argente creme, as its a ticked mouse and neither of those varieties are.

Okay, thanks. Can anyone tell me what this doe IS, since she's not an argente cream? Her mother was a siamese, her father is a black tan with a really pale belly.

The best place to see her color is on her butt. She has a spot on her shoulder too, but it's so light most of the time you can't see it. She was darker as a baby, but not by much.

So probably the siamese mother was a blue point? The mother passed away recently, and I don't have any pictures of her.

Hi Willow,

most of my Argente Creams are A/A cch/cch p/p or A/a cch/cch p/p. It seems the at is not needed to make an Argente cream, just the A and a double does of cch and p :

Technically, Roland my dear, you have chinchillated Argentes... since our NMC standards say that Argente Creme must have a white stomach, just like the chinchilla mouse! hehe ;)
Hence the Aw/* or A/at needed to make the white tummy.

Hi Willow,

your standard does not interest me a tiny little bit :lol:

Nevertheless: Argente is A/* p/p and with cch/cch it would never be chinchillated Argente
, it would be pink eyed Silver Agouti, if you want to be nitpicky.
Chinchillated Argente would need the at, because A/a cch/cch is a Silver Agouti, while A/at cch/cch is a Chinchilla.

Best regards , Roland

Sometimes the set standards make me laugh. But, why ask why? I just giggle and shrug it off. ;)
