I don't know. I know that carrying chocolate for sure can be wonky depending on what other alleles are present.

All good pointed mice are black (a/a) on the A-locus. So a proper siamese is a/a c(h)/c(h) and a himalayan is a/a c(h)/c.

The only thing that you can have on the A-locus other than "a" (i.e. black) is extreme black, a(e). Extreme black makes the points darker and more even, but I don't know how common it is in the UK...

My youngest siam girlies that were born in my mousery have bloody brilliant face points, must be because my mousery is outside in a lovely shed.
does anyone have a picture of a Blue Point Siam? I bet the good ones are totally gorgeous!! <3 <3

That's very likely. Colder temperatures make for darker points (and larger animals).

You said the male is a good example of black? He'll be good to use in creating more pointed animals, then. The darker the black, the better the points in a siamese/himalayan litter.

His type is excellent for an outcross, surprisingly so. He does have a little bit of tan on his ears and vent (But not too much! Woo!) which is to be expected with a normal black. His only fault, white tail tip dang it! But I can forgive that at the moment... i'm looking to build on type at the moment more than colour.

Ooo they ARE pretty... *ponders*
