Getting all grown up

Here is some of our 4-5 week old mixed litter, the ones that had pointy faces which, thankfully, seem to be not so pointy now =)
In here we have platinums, pews and (I think) a cream. Most are marked and I'm still no closer to getting any selfs in these colours (other than pews). Any suggestions? They're type is improving though, not perfect, but the now look more showy than pet. The ears aren't quite as good on these as the last litter though, which is a bit disappointing.

PEW Doe from a previous litter but looking good =)

This is the Doe I'm not sure of, the only way to get pics of the colour as it is on the eye, is to photo her in the shade

There is no such thing as platinum in mouse varieties. Making up new terms doesn't help, it further dilutes the situation and confuses people.

Silver is very different from cream, champagne and PEW. Just because it is a pale silver, it is not a different, made up, variety. If you're not sure if a mouse is silver, look at the base coat, which will be blue or on a very pale animal, pale blue. You will be able to see the difference. And if you can't see the differenced between a PEW and a silver, you should consider geting your eyes tested! They are different colours.
