Hi Guys!! I have some questions for all of you and I hope you can help me out.

I am rebuilding the mousery, as most of you know, and wanted to add Black Eyed Cream to my breeding lines. Problem is..... I do not know much about the gene at all actually. I was looking at some beautiful pictures and they actually look almost identical to a Black Eyed White mouse except that they were more milky white. What is the difference between a BEW and a BEC? What are their genetic codes and is there a way to produce a black eyed cream without actually having one in the mousery? Any information would be greatly apreciated and I would LOVE to see a comparision picture between the two if someone could whip one up.

The trouble with cream is that you're going to need the Ay gene, which is hard to find.

Black eyed cream is Ay/- cch/cch
Pink eyed cream is Ay/- cch/cch p/p


Ivory (black eyed white) is a/a ce/c
You can also make BEW with. . .
s/s (bred to be high white)
W/w s/s


Creams, in the UMC are suppose to be a light pastel shade of yellow.
Here is the standard:
Cream - Very pale, off white. Should have a slight
yellow hue, similar to rich heavy dairy cream. Eyes any colour
Genotype - Ay/* cch/cch

This is our cream photo:

And here is an Ivory (BEW) which according to the UMC should be:
Ivory - Pale white with a very light gray hue. Eyed
are black.
a/a ce/c

And for the UMC 'white' is a self colour, which can be black, ruby, or pink eyed, but the goal is to have the whitest, cleanest coat possible. Which can be bred from Ivory, piebald, or variegated/piebald. Happy

I would -think- you could probably make a cream colour with another gene other than Ay. Maybe a really dark red Avy or a reeeeeally dark e/e with cch/cch might do the trick. You could sure as hell try it!

I'm sure there are also other genes that in combination will produce an off-white yellowish mouse, it's just a matter of putting them together. tongue
