This is true, but it only gives you something more to look forward to when the babies pop out! Make sure you let us know what colour they eventually become, the mystery of what colour your PEW is hiding in her genes needs to be solved :lol:MouseBreeder said:The albino gene (c) actually masks the colour a mouse truly is - all PEWs are 'coloured' underneath this, regardless of the amount of generations that they have been PEW for. When bred to a coloured mouse that doesn't carry albino their colour will become apparent. Therefore if you breed a PEW to anything but a PEW, you will find it impossible to predict the results without a clue to what 'colour' the PEW really is underneath! In short, look forward to some surprises in your litter
Ahhhh the wonders of breeding... ack, you guys live to make me yearn for some pinkies myself, I don't even have my own mice yet! (Though the landlady has been consulted and we are waiting for a phone call between now and Monday. I'm not sure what I'll do if she says no, probably cry.)moustress said:Ah, but then there's the suspense as you wait for the colors to show as they fur up. I like to take pix and blwo them up to see what's what as early as possible. Very exciting!
