All these are the proper show varieties in standard coat.

1. agouti (my favorite, but difficult to get right)
2. PEW (my other favorite, easier to get right but lots of competition)
3. chinchilla (Aw/Aw cch/cch, breeding-true, my other other favorite. lol)
4. champagne (a variety I've never bred but love to look at)
5. black (good, deep, show blacks like you said)

1. Ivory Satin
2. Lilac (I love the pictures i've seen of them and the idea of them, but once I start producing them, they will be the first I have seen in real life :D )
3. Dove and Dove Tans, I love them equally
4. Champagne Satin
5. Show Blacks, can't wait to see some in real life! The pictures ALWAYS make me go Oooo! lol

1) Argente
2) Silver
Those almost made it onto my list! Some of the best-typed mice I've ever produced have been argentes, but they were never on purpose! :lol:

1- Fawn- I have a LOT of these
2- Argente- especially in satin
3- Blue tan- had a really good satin blue tan years ago and didn't appreciate it properly
4- Agouti- a friendly agouti can melt my heart anytime
5- Tricolour-love the unpredictablility

In general, I love any mousie that will crawl into my hand on it's own. I have to careful not wear anything with long sleeves in the mousery because some groups will swarm me when I put my hand in the tank, and then I have them all up my arm and around my neck, shoulders, etc.

Silver nearly got on my list too, especially silver satin.

I love a lot of colours, no fair for asking me to pick!! I see pictures of peoples mousies and go 'Ooooh, i love that' quite alot!

Also, I had a BIG decision moment between blacks and blues, so blues would have been number 6! lol

I have a couple of varieties of Mice just for fun......eye candy if you will :) , but Argentes are my main project.
It's early days with them though and I'm working hard to improve them.
Hope I have the success with them that you had Jack...even if it was accidental.
