Crossing my agouti merle buck and chocolate tan doe of unknown heritage resulted in a litter of five colors- black, chocolate, agouti, and two I'm not so sure about. Obviously the variety gives me a good look at the recessives each carries. I tried to get a full litter picture but my camera battery died... so while it charges, here are two bucks and a doe. The chocolate buck was added for color comparison. Any ideas on the other two? :)



My favorite little buck :)

I think the one on the left in the first pic is cinnamon; not sure about the other one. The one in the second pic looks blue to me.

The one in the second pic is the bottom right pup in the first. I just love him :) He looks ticked in person, so I was thinking he looked silver agouti or chinchilla, but then wouldn't both parents have to be carry ch or something like that?

Yeah, colors in the brown and gray shades can be very hard to judge in photos. Silvering may be a possibility. Give us another pic when the little cutie gets bigger.
