Help with colour please.

Post by lavenderlush » Wed Aug 03, 2011 6:23 pm

Here are my 6 month old boys, Rory & Ralph. We've always wondered what their exact colour was, we settled on calling them Minkys, but am wondering if they are Agouti's or if there is an Agouti base to them or even if they are Burmese colour? One is a Berkie and the other is a self. Their colour sometimes looks lighter some days and darker on others. I've posted a few pics (some with their roan bro's) cos their colour looks like it varies from pic to pic. The last 4 pics were taken when they were around 3 and a half months old. I have a couple of Agouti girls but these 2 boys don't look as warm brown as them. Hope someone can come along and identify :wink:

He ended up looking like a scruffy agouti rex in his old age though, he moulted all his blue guard hairs off bless him.
