congrats! just one little question, was melody one of the ones in the group of 4 girls i gave you (3 the same colour then one agouti)?

If so, shes actually fawn, not argente. They look the same on the surface, but if you look at the under colour of the buck, then the under colour of the doe, you'll see the buck will have a bluey colour, while the doe will have the same colour all the way down. that wont afftect what the babies are though, as agrente is effectivly agouti with pink eyes, so is as dominant as the agouti gene. So babies are all argente anyways.

There is a whole range of colours in this litter, 2 Fawns which are both girls, 5 grey boys and girls and 1 little girl which has puzzled me with her colour, it is darker them white but lighter them grey but is not a cream :S
