Cross Your Fingers for Merles! GOT THEM!! UPDATE with pics!

Post by candycorn on Mon Mar 19, 2012 9:19 pm



There is me and Daddy! Dad is a black rex who carries Merle from Beth C at Mousey Moments.

And here is Mom!



She is about to blow (she will probably last a week now that I have said that)!!!

I am jumping with excitement! I thought she had not taken so I had taken her out of the tank with the dad after 20 days and put her in a nursing cage anyway to let her rest a few days and then BOOM...she just blew up! HORRAY!

WE HAVE MERLES!!!! Well at least one that I can tell so far!
She was a bad mom at first..but then she got the idea! They are small but healthy and starting to color up! And man o man..I have merles! The father was a proven carrier, but this has really made my day! I can't wait until they really fur up!

It's so awesome that you can see the merle patches so early on. That must be a trait coming from the mother, since it was always harder to see them on the ones from the lines from me. I always have to wait until they're eyes are opening before I can tell for sure.

LOL Okay Okay!

Here are the two boys. One heavily marked merle and one roan like boy!
They are super cute!



Then 5 girls. Looks like maybe two merles and blacks. Their fur is taking longer to come in.

And they look very flaky and dry right now.
I am going to rehome this litter and wait to work on my merle line later in life. But I not selling the parents.
I will keep updating as the fur comes in on those ladies!

OH I am not selling him! I should have made that more clear, and I editted the post so it would be.
I am going to let the non related merle buck go as well as this litter. So someone can start their own merle project.
The black buck is my snuggle baby! He is never going anywhere!

They are growing up! I am going to keep one doe in case I decide to breed her back to Dad one day...I just can't help myself. But the rest of the litter are going home with Sarah after RF!
