No, these arent planned litters or anything, but its easer for me to learn genetics by asking questions.
What would I get if I bred:

1-Broken black X Argente
2-Broken Black X Recessive yellow
3-Broken Agouti X Recessive yellow
4-Argente X Broken Agouti

Can agouti be carried, or is it like with rats, it either shows or its not there.

Assuming they don't carry any other genes:

1-Broken black X Argente = Agouti Self
2-Broken Black X Recessive yellow = Agouti or/and Black Self (depending on whether your recessive yellow was agouti or black based)
3-Broken Agouti X Recessive yellow = Agouti Self
4-Argente X Broken Agouti = Agouti Self

Agouti is the same as in rats, it is dominant over black and can't be carried.

Hope this helps!

Sorry to be a pain but it's one of those things that annoys me - there's no such thing as an agouti self. It's just plain old agouti I'm afraid, since it's ticked and not a self ;)
