I am very excited... obviously its not guarenteed that there will actually be any lilacs in this litter, but the fact that my gen1's have finally decided to produce is enough for me right now! lol

Please forgive the bad lighting! :?


The girls


The boys

This litter has been reduced since these pics were taken, 4 pink eyed babies were taken out.

I will update as they grow! :D

Culled litter down to the ones who are not blacks/ too dark.

The litter is now of 4 babies... one of which looks promising for being a lilac, but we shall see.

I have no idea, as I'm not "up" on all the varieties and genes (yet ;) ) but I do think it's the cutest thing I've seen in a long time!

My lilac started off looking like a pale blue,but turned out to be a lilac. The shade can range so much on them.

I think Cait may be right, i think she is probably a pale blue... very pale. But still she has a shade to her coat that suggests chocolate, she it may be that she is a blue carrying choc.

Obviously i am dissapointed, but I shall still keep her on and breed her back to a Gen1 boy.

Do you have another picture of it? When my lilac was about the same age as the last picture you posted, it looked just like yours,but as it got older, the coloring changed a bit. And if yours is pale blue, then at least I can see the differnce so that way I can tell when I have both blues and lilacs.

Aw she is a beautiful colour!! The tip of her nose looks so dark compared to the rest of her - I'm so glad that I live so far away from most of the people on this forum otherwise I'd be overrun with mice like yours they are too beautiful to resist!
