Ok, probably an obvious answer :roll: but if I breed a long haired satin buck to a shorthaired "normal", will I get long haired? satin? short haired? semi-long haired?.
Thanks in advance!

All depends what the standard carries, but you will most likely get half/half because satin and long-haired are not recessive. I think this is right, but I'm new to genetics so don't completely count on my word

Satin and longhaired are both recessive. Unless the normal carries them you'd get all normal mice who were carriers.

Ok i have a question too, how can i get a long haired satin?

I have short coated satins, and i've got long coated normals, i've never gotton a long coated satin though, how could i produce one?

Satin x longhair = All normal mice who carry both satin and longhair
Breed the babies together = 1 in 16 will statistically be a satin longhair
