in one of my current litters i have a mystery baby ( :D ). mom is RY i think (picture posted), and dad is Avy/A brindle. she has agouti babies and sooty-something babies. plussss this little creamy colored fellow. now i thought that she would only have agouti and brindle because of the dad.. so i thought maybe this baby could be argente since he has pink eyes but he isnt really orange or dark colored at all. thats why i need help :) . i took pics of him next to a PEW so you could see his color better. (the litter is 18 days old btw)

mom:


dad:


some other babies from the same litter:



and my funky baby (white mouse is from another litter ;) ) :

Unfortunately we could only guess without seeing the mouse (photographs never get the colour right and everyone's screens are different) and knowing the genes the parents carry - this is probably why no-one has replied yet.

Purely from the photograph I would hazard a guess and say agouti point Siamese (A* ch/ch E/e - points will develop at around 5-6 weeks). I think I can see shading down the back and rump in the first and second pictures, but I could well be wrong.

ive never heard of agouti point saimese.. and unfortunately i dont really know what genes the parents carry. i just know that the dad carries c and b. so he would be Avy/A B/b */c D/* P/p right? and im not sure about E or e.. srry i dont know more :oops: . but thanks for helping

Siamese is easily masked dominant genes; you may have darkness at the snout and tail on your agoutis as a result. I agree with Sarah, though the eyes are somewhat light for a siamese. The parents both have to be A^vy(or yellow of some type) A (agouti) in orer for you to get both yellow and agouti babies.

im confused about this.. because i bred the same buck to my broken blue doe and got only agouti and brindle babies (plus albino). so i dont really get what you're trying to say. could you elaborate please? :)

also, the mom and sooty babies have dark ears and dark tails so does that mean the siamese is masked? if it is indeed siamese?
