These does are from 7 to nine weeks old, all out of litters sired by Adamant on his daughters and grand daughters. Some are trisor splashed and others are their sisters.

The doe with the brown on the face and around the ears has dark red, almost ruby, eyes. Thats a thing that comes with about 25 t0 30% of tris or meeces with tri in their genetics. I really like the color in satin as it looks like bronze metal.

Thanks, folks.

She is one of the sisters of the tris there were relatively few in these three litters that had tri markings, but I woldn't call any of them tricolor since they don't meat the standard. I just say tri unless they do. Like many of the c locus phenomenon, the tri factor has an effect of eye and hair color even when it is heterozygous, with a full color C plus some c dilute in the second spot. Any of these girls when bred to a mousie showing tri variations will have an average of 25% tri marked babies.

I have only had about 8 meeces who mostly fit the published standard for tricolor, and considerably more meeces who are rightly called splashed.

That broken marked blue is a little gadfly; she must be homozy for boingy.
