I always thought that this female was a BEW, but recently I see that she's not white because she has a spot that it's more white that the body, that is why I saw that she was not whole white. Is it possible that she is bone?

It's difficult to see, but I think it gets.. it's more white in leg up.












Compared with an albine.

That is normal... bew you have with c(e)c.... but a spot have no pigments.. no melanocyten...

c(e) c it make only a reduction of the melain.

I would like to get a definition of the wordings.

For me "Bone" is not ce/ce. ce/ce is beige.
What is your understanding of "Bone"?

Bone is nothing else than the purest form of BEW: c/ce.
There are many more ways, to breed BEW, I know.

Hi,

all ce/ce I have ever seen were much darker. I think it is c/ce and the white marking could be caused by a variegation.

Example: c/ce s/s has a bone white + snow white variegated phenotype.

c/ce could easily be slelctively bred to be a BEW though. If you bred c/ce to c/c every generation the c/ce would be white eventually. In England c/ce is a black eyed cream and a very popular show variety.

If it helps, the father is a hairless and the mother a broken chocolate. In the litter they were 3 "whites" and one pearl, among other (younger and older babies have different mothers).

ce/c in this country would be called Black Eyed Cream. In europe I believe it is called Bone, In america I think its called Ivory.

Its not white, its 'off white'... basically when put next to a true white (Pink eyed White or white spotted) you can tell it isn't white.

Add p^p to ce^c (which is easier said than done) and you have pink eyed bone, which makes also a PEW. I had a couple of those about a year ago. Another way to create a white mouse with either black or pink eyes is a homozygot banded.

But if you put a Pink Eyed Bone next to a Pink Eyed White, you would be able to tell the difference.

No, they looked completely "albino", I could only tell by their litters or by the litters they popped up in that they were pink eyed bone.
