Hi Mike nice to see someone else from manchester!

I'll have to come have a look at your clan in the flesh;

2 looks like a blue and 4 looks like a chocolate to me , but i'm not the best with colours yet!

drop me a PM , its good to have other breeders so close!

Mine isn't nearly as patchy as the picture shows. :lol:
She's also a rex, so it makes the light reflect strangely off of her fur. :)

Yeah. She's very cute. I find that with blue, curly coats emphasize the patchiness (even when it's not there much) due to the way pigment is distributed (unevenly, blues actually have more pigment than blacks) and then bent. It's much less noticable an effect than curly coats have on ticked varieties, though. In theory, a good blue could be curly-coated and you wouldn't be able to see any of the patchiness. The self-colored mice make the best examples of all types of curly coats. Blue is just the "least best," I think. Very adorable meece, though. :)

I think blues look good in a thick fuzzy coat though. :lol:

I agree, her colour is not complimented by her coat style. I have a different line of blues started, that have curls, but the end result is a very nice looking blue. It's VERY blue-blue, instead of gray blue. Very interesting effect that their specific curls create. I'll take some pictures of them once I borrow my mom's camera again. :roll:

The line she's in (the blue mouse I posted) is actually going to be blacks, PEW, broken blacks, but the colour is not very important since they are being bred for short-haired (almost naked) fuzzies. :lol:
