heya
was just wondering if theres such a thing as i white or ivory tan, as i know the tan gene is dominant and ur likely to get mainly tans if 1 of the parents is a carrier of the tan gene.
i was wondering if this gene worked with whites or ivory mice as ive never seen or heard of it before? x

Ivories and pews are albino,therefore their colour is masked .Meaning it is perfectly easy to breed ivory or pew tans but they will be white all over as all albinos are ;)

Nope. You can breed very pale silver tans that look almost white though if you are aiming for it because you think it would be attractive.

thats right the albinoism(I think I made that word up)would mask the colour and the mouse could only be white,albinos can only ever be white regardless of parents.Two self black parents could produce an albino baby,the albino bit would mask the fact that it was a black though and the mouse would be white.Sorry I'm not scientific,just a laymans description.

I breed champagne tans and I won the tan section overall last year showing them.They are a good choice if you like the pale coloured tans.tan wouldn't show on reds or fawns and would be poor on very pale colours such as cream.Anything that carries chinchilla would have the tan bleached white and marked mice don't usually show a solid tan but I should think all others are viable.
