So we have tons of litters right now in the last month we have had 5 litters totaling 34 kits but we're down to 19 if my math is right.
Litter 1 Black tan doe X broken blue buck/15 days old/3 does left double banded satin, broken black satin, dutch standard
Litter 2 poor self black X broken black buck/7 days old/5 left I think 3 black tans 1 self black and 1 white with 2 tiny black spots
Litter 3 Blue brindle X Champagne tan/7 days old/ 4 left 2 pew 1 RY 1 champagne possibly tan think 1 pew champagne may be satin
Litter 4 Black tan X champagne tan/2 days old/ 5 left brokens and tans
Litter 5 ???? I don't know who had this one he looks two days old but I didn't see him till today. He was in with litter 3 and I haven't handled them in 3 days just peeked in the nest so it is possible they hid him as he is the only one. Every one in the tub looks prego who should I think it may have been a doe named Bella she had a litter Sept. 5th that she cannibalized and is a large doe so if she only had 1 she would never have looked pregnant.
So keeping this little one named Phoenix double banded satin (pics don't show off the stunning satin so need to do a good photo shoot :roll: )
Standard dutch she has nice markings but not working with this pattern so she wont be staying
More pics sorry some of them are blurry I have to take my camera in and get the focus adjusted
Some of my blacks
RY buck that I think I'll keep
I have three nice satins in this litter can anyone tell if one of the ry babies is satin I think the one in the top corner might be.
I'm really interested to see how this ones color turns out. This is my "mystery litter 5" turns out it was my fox doe who gave birth to her.
Not as clear but shows her color better she has kind of a steely blue gray color.
From left to right ry dutch, PEW (genetically I think she is one big white spot rather than c/c), broken champagne.
Litter was just born this evening I counted 13 heads quickly but didn't get a good look at everyone the doe was very agitated they are from a broken agouti doe and broken champagne tan buck.
I have a litter out of my favorite mice Bella (unknown color) X Champ (broken champagne tan) half are black tan or fox the other half are still pink
I'm really excited to see their type as these two are my biggest mice.one litter out of two broken champagne tans two litters due middle of next week then that will be it until these are old enough to go to their homes and I've had time to see what mice have given me the best type.
There are some out there but it doesn't sound like they're very common I had a picture of one and now I can't find it. I'm hoping I'll have an example from my own lines in a few months as I now have several banded does hopefully when I breed them to my champagne tan I'll get some.
I forgot to mention that the black spotted is a doe. Right now I only have two or three bucks other than the three litters of pinkies I haven't checked yet.
Currently I have 9 litters ranging in ages from under 24hrs to 3.5 weeks. I have 3 litters that will go to a "growing" cage next Friday.
I do think phoenix can help me in my goals I also have one kit who looks like she could be a banded tan but her belly color hasn't come in yet so she could also be a fox. If she is a tan that will be marvelous the only real problem with her is the band is over the shoulders rather than over the mid section.
