Hi all, thanks for taking a look at my post. I really hope that by now you guys can help me confirm the various colours in my litter....

Mum is Champagne (out of Champagne x Black)
Dad is Himalayan (out of (I believe) Silver Fawn x PEW/Albino)

Here are the babies 11 days old.

I agree with your guesses :) The silver fawns are most likely berkshires too - although they do have paler bellies anyway so it's not so obvious. They're very pretty babies.

yes there is a right mixture, no two are the same.

There are 4 boys (1xChamHoodRex, 1xChamHood, 1xAgoutiRex, 1xBlackBerkie) I aim to be keeping 2.
And 5 girls (1xSilverFawnDumboRex, 1xSilverFawnHood, 1xAgoutiBerkie, 1xCham, 1xChamRex) I aim to be keeping 3.

Here is a pic from a couple of days ago

Beautiful little ratlets. I reckon you might have soem siamese in there too. A couple of your bubs look just like mine did as babies. Watch out for dusky noses apearing on the champagnes! :D

ooooh that would be nice! I was hoping for Himi's too but didn't think Id get any in this generation. Siamese would be a massive bonus! :-)

Thanks for your colour confirmation again :-)

I am still very happy that they are Champagne. I've been trawling through pictures of Siamese and Himalayans trying to figure out how you know what they are at the younger ages until the points some through. Is there a way? It's very difficult from just looking at pictures.

Himalayans are white as babies. You can't tell them from PEW/Ivory unless you know genetically that's what they are, until the points come through.

Siamese look like Siamese kittens.. they don't look like Champagne or Buff or any other colour.. don't know how to explain, they just are.

I don't see Siamese in there either. They tend to have a two tone look to them, like pale brown and champagne, but not obviously brown it's odd to explain but it's very noticeable once you've seen it.
The boys: Squadcar, Paddywagon, Alkatraz and Leavenworth

My angels always remembered.
