Hairless mouse litter

I have a pair of hairless Mice the female has no hair , the male has no hair.The first litter they have had was eight babies. Six are white with a brown band, one is hairless, one is a fuzzy white which I think will turn hairless. Can someone explain how I can get pure hairless babies?, and how I managed to get six which are banded? please and thank you.

Hi Artunature,
No problems at all , She has had two litters all survived I gave her plenty protein before and when nursing them .Scrambled egg Mealworms were given and dog kibble.The thing is if these have the fuzzy gene they wont have the lactating problem that true hairless have.Out of the litters I have had, over half have been born true hairless .She is a fantastic Mum .
