3 brothers... what colour?

Post by Ainita » Tue Jul 27, 2010 1:44 pm

This 3 ratties are brothers...

The mom is dove, and the dad is blue.

One of them is dove.
Other is PEW.

But the third brother... what colour is?
Without the flash it seems albino, only you see that isn't PEW if you put next an albino.

The dove one doesn't look very dove to me, but it could be my screen. Do you have a better photo of him? :D

The other lad is a champagne as lil said.

Dove, champagne and PEW.

Looks very dove to me (heathering, ruby eyes).

I dont think the dispute was with those two, they do look PEW and champagne to me. It's the ruby eyed minky/dove fella we're not sure about.

A clear picture of the dove/mink boy would be good if you can get one :)

I imagine that if the dove is also carrying p (the gene causing champagne), then it would explain the red eyes and the slightly odd coat colour.
