This is a very fat and healthy baby from a recent litter of mine.



What colour would you call it? Bare in mind the fur is very very pale and the eyes are black. Black Eyed Cream? Yeah, thats what i'd call it too!!
So... WHY IS IT IN MY LILAC LINES?

I should know exactly what my lilac lines carry... this baby makes absolutely no genetic sense to me what so ever. The should be no c(e) in my lines at all.

As much as I love surprises... this one is not cool. Once again, C Locus... I hate you. LOL!

Maybe you had a mouse back in your lines somewhere that looked like a lilac but actually wasnt? I have no idea how two lilacs would make that baby. It's cute though!

My lilac lines are just thats... lines to *create* Lilac, I'm starting from scratch, as Lilac is not a popular colour over here.

My Lilac lines *should* have blue, choc, pink eye and albino in them and NOTHING else. The pink eye and albino is in thier because for my starting stock I used chams and cham bred PEW's for size and type.

But it seems lately, I have inadvertantly bred out the choc gene. And it also appears I have a rogue gene in there too!! Ian and Loganberry need to get thier bee-hinds in here! hehee

Just Mouse- Ivory in the US is the same as Black Eyed Cream overseas. c^e/c Which is one extreme dilute gene and one albino gene. I believe overseas they call Albino Satin "Ivory."

Not a chance (well theres always a bit of a chance I guess!) Although I was told by thier breeder that in the past the lines had thrown siamese although I never got one.

hmm... too pale for siamese, and if it was himi (because I know my lilacs have albino in them) it would have pink eyes.

I just want to be able to explain this baby! LOL I shall be texting heather next! *LMAO*

I will be keeping her around, I do want to make sure she is actually a BEC! In any event, I don't want to risk using her in my lilac lines, and have no use for her anywhere else, but mousemad has claimed her!! lol

And Sam... my Lilac lines are all decended from Ian, Heather and SarahY's mice. There is nothing else in there.

I think it was just blues from me wasnt it? I dont remember ever having any chocolates but might be wrong :/

My blues were from only two sources, and I didnt keep them very long only a year but I only started off with a trio of one lot and a trio of the other lot but only managed to get only one good enough baby from them and it was using the buck from the other trio. So I started off with a very small gene pool and never ended up with any c locus genes cropping up. I know its possible that the gene managed to keep itself hidden by luck but knowing both of the breeders I just dont see them providing animals without giving the full genetic history of the mice.

Yup, blues from you Ian, Chams from SarahY and Cham bred PEW's from Heather is what went into these mice.
