Here are a couple PEW mice that came out of a litter of an agouti outcross recently.









I know they're agouti "underneath" the PEW (mother is homozygous), and I'm hoping they can help improve size and type.

I wish that the agouti babies in the same litter would have the same ears, but nope. Figures, doesn't it? :p

I think this litter has ears placed a bit too low, anyway...but maybe it's just me.

(BTW, I'm not a good photographer at all, I took over 400 to get these! haha!)

Her ears are kinda small compared to some of the mice she's related to that I've seen pictures of.

I think (though I have no direct evidence to back it up) that as ears get super large, they hang to the side and are thus set lower. :p

In terms of ears and overall type, one of the girls pictured is slightly better than both mom and dad, but I wish she was agouti. All it means though is that I will have PEW crop up for some time, probably, if I decide to breed from this litter...I guess it could be a worse, harder-to-work-with (from a show standpoint) recessive, though, like siamese or recessive yellow, so I'm thankful for that.
