Thats just molting hon, though I see what you mean!!

She's not a BEW, she's a Black Eyed Cream, and could maybe be agouti based too with that molting.

That ROCKS!!! LOL

And they will most likely be creams Kelly... true BEW's only occur when the mouse is covered totally by white spotting, if niether of the parents are white marked, the chances are very slim the babies are BEW

black eyed creams as dark as that one are called stone.I know that one is a pet line but they are part and parcel of breeding exhibition creams and are bred from but can't be shown which is a pity because you get some really big typey ones.

I personally love the Stone colour! Is there a reason it can't be shown? Or is it just because its not popular?

They can't be shown because they aren't distinct enough in their own right to be classed as a variety.If you want to submit a new variety of mouse for recognition it would have to be entirely different to what is already permissable.It's very difficult to get a new mouse colour passed.
