Any theories on how that could have happened? LOL

Hehe I adore them too!!! I think it is a beautiful shade... unfortunately not a show blue, but it is a pale blue I have bred for my lilac lines :D

Maybe I should breed for lighter and introduce a 'powder blue' to the mouse fancy? hehehe

Rumpwhite crossed to selfs often come out like that, though one person I can think of had fairly good rumps in the first generation when bred to a non rumpwhite (Ian), which surprised me. I think there may be modifiers that affect this. The ones that came out looking more like rumpwhites were mated to tans. Unfortunately there aren't enough show breeders about to be able to get a good sample of opinions on things like this.

I was honestly shocked that they had white unders, since I have read that that is the hardest thing to get right on a RW mouse, I was expecting them to have no white on the tummy at all lol
