Dad looks like a broken marked Blue, he is quite yummy! Mum i'm not too sure of, maybe a dark argente (pink eyed agouti) does she have an 'undercoat' of a different colour to her top coat? If not, she may be a fawn. Also, it looks like she might be satin... again, hard to tell with the pic.

Hmm... if mum is Argente, you may get agouti babies... but i'm gonna guess these are pet shop meece? If so, its possible they carry lots of recessives.
The fact that you have pink eyed babies in the mix means either daddy carries the pink eyed gene, or both parents carry the albino gene.

Should be fun to watch them grow up!

Eeeep! They're so cute! I agree--it will be fun to watch them grow up. I rarely have "rainbow litters" (mice of all different colors) these days so I like to see others' as they grow up! :)

Gorgeous little pups. I'm curious what the babies will look like. Both the parents are so lovely. Keep us updated!
