Oh, I love genetics guessing games!

Her color is not even as far I can see. Not warm enough to be cream, no trace of yellow that I can see. There are what look like the trace of markings in little blotchy patches, faint, she could be some sort of variegated that has a lotta, lotta, lotta dilution. Bone would be a good word to apply to this. Black-eyed marked bone is my guess.

They're your meeces; only you can judge the suitability of one of them for breeding.

Read up on the subject, including the fairly simple genetics involved. (If you can count to ten, you ought to be able to make sense of it. Try looking at PetRodents, they have a nice brief section on genetics. You can use the info to help you predict the possible outcome as far as colors and coat types.

In any case, breeding mousies isn't always beer and skittles; I have no idea how experienced you are, and things can go wrong.
