They are all from the same litter. The dark ones are splashed; these girls are from a pairing of an albino buck and a splashed/tri doe. Their color is probably agouti, which dilutes the background and allows the darker splashing. Berg was a jumbo albino, and one of these girls is actually bigger than he was!

Albino and black eyed white occur in many tricolor and splashed litters because the c and c^e (albino and extreme dilutions) on work well together with any of the other c locus dilutions in producing tris and splashed meeces. Since each parent carried albino, about half the babies are albino, and half splashed, as there was no other marking genes involved.
