I am a bit unsure about a litter I have at the moment. I am asusming it is a mix of blue and lilac although one doe is plaer than the other lilas, so not sure if it might be a dilute (cece). Also it seems to be a fox, could the ce gene dilute the tan so far that it appears fox?

You'd need the tan gene a^t along with the c^ch for a true fox...if it's a true fox the line beween the top and bottom would be clear cut from nose to tail. A picture would help. a^t alone makes a tan (belly that's orange, peachy), and the two together make a fox.

Both ce and ch can also dilute a tan to white... which is why you never find a beige or siam tan! Only foxes

Thanks Willow, I wasnt sure if it was just a really pale shade of lilac but its really unlikely to be a fox based on the genetics of the parents, so it must be a plain old dilute tan.
