I think you have a little red guy 3rd pic down, and the following whitish types Id call creams? I assumed all pink eyed reddish looking mice were fawn but Im probably totally wrong...wouldnt want to guess at the others :lol: Maybe the first one is stone? Im clueless. Theyre lovely anyway

i'll have a stab, though don't take me for 100%!

1st: cream satin/stone satin?
2nd: fawn satin
3rd: red satin
4th: ivory (pink eyed white satin) though may be himalayan, i don't know how long it takes points to come through?
5th: same as above
6th: and again
7th: black - probably satin as the rest of the litter seem to be! as for the silver tummies, I want to see to believe as this gene is a bit odd here I think?

no. 5 looks in no way grey on that pic, it really would show up, and the pics are quite decent! with pink eyes though is your SURE its a grey colour it will be dove. BUT given the parents, it doesn't seem likely, but I havn't quite grasped genetics in mice yet so could be totally wrong.

i dont really feel comfortable choosing them for u tho, so might just bring them all with me and let u choose :) as long as u dont steal my fawn girl, i love her <3

and heres the pics u requested vi, the one of the black with silver tummy isnt very good as theyre the wriggliest for some reason lol, this is the best i could get...

The pink eyed grey satin definately looks like a dove to me in the latest pictures. Cameras can be very funny, and I suppose it'd even worse for satins what with the translucent hairs refracting the flash strangely. The photos of my doves never, ever come out the right colour or even shade. Another thing is that I've noticed dove can be very changeable from when the fur first grows through to adulthood and they usually do start off paler - my best dove buck is now 6 months old and he was almost white as a baby. The best coloured babies end up too dark and the ones that are too pale generally have great colouring by the time they're ready for breeding. At least in my experience anyway :)
