The sable tri , a sable with pied, will never be a true tri, as the darker pigments wil always be on the dorsal area of the mouse, lighter colours on the flanks. This will of course be a mouse with three patches of colour, but never all in the right areas. Hope this helps.moustress said:Ah, the Holy Grail of mousedom. As I understand it, though, the sable tri or the mottled tri with the yellow and black pigments forming a calico, are both very unpredictable.
I have been breeding mice for a year for my snake i had gotten a fancy male with a piebald tail an I bred him enough for a mouse to finally have genetic mutations N I produced a piebald bald male mouse!!! He was the runt of his litter so hes way smaller then his siblings but still so amazing 👏The secret is in the knowledge of genetics...to be worthy of a tricolored mouse one must first master the art of specific genetic combination :smartass1 :book2
Tricolor = piebald + splashed + c-dilution (except for c^c)
