Seriously?!

Post by Love2read on Tue Apr 03, 2012 12:49 am

I was checking in on all of my bubbies today to see how everyone was coloring up and I got a bit of a surprise...

I'd paired my Blue Standard doe, Delicate Lady, with my Blue Standard buck, Blue Boy. There are very few surprises in the line, mostly just Blue, Black, and PEW, so when I saw this...




My reaction was this...




Needless to say, there was obviously a mixup somewhere along the way, lol. Delicate Lady was never with any other bucks except for Blue Boy, but there was a Brindle doe in the group who gave birth to her babies the morning after Delicate Lady, so I figure she probably popped out a baby right before I took DL and her babies out, this ending up in the mix with DL's bubs. tongue

Thankfully, all of the other babies are Blues, so that means that the brindle baby is the only one from the Brindle girl.

Anyways, I just thought I'd share the funny story with ya'll.

I think she's Brindle, not Splash, but I could definitely be wrong. I guess we'll find out as she colors up. Wink

She couldn't be brindle.

I had splashed pop up in my agouti satin line once. It just happened one day that one parent was Spl and both carried a c dilute and one day they finally lined up on one mouse. tongue

I had a brindle mouse in the same group who gave birth within 12 hours of Delicate Lady. I think that the mystery baby is hers and not DL's. I thought DL had a few more days to go before she popped, so I hadn't set up a separate container for her yet, but she ended up only having 4 babies(which would explain why she wasn't very big).

I split her from the other girls and gave her the bundle of 5 babies, thinking all 5 were hers. By morning there was another litter in the group and those were my Brindle girl's. Thus, I'm pretty darn tootin sure that the baby with Delicate Lady is actually the Brindle's and not hers. Wink

That's why I'm thinking this baby is a brindle and not splashed.

Ah yeah, okay, from another mother might make sense. What sort of brindle is the other mother?

I'm not completely sure. Since she's satin it makes it difficult to tell. Also, I have no pedigree on her because I got her from a pet store.

Here's a baby pic of her:


And an adult pic:


Any ideas?

Ohhh she's so gorgeous. I will never decide on a colour to breed for. Every new batch of photos has me yearning for something else. Why aren't you all in Canada? Sad
