He does look just very faintly pointed. Do we know for sure that these are all black-based? If not, non-black-based pointed mice will have paler points, making it harder to determine which are himi and which are pew.

Unless you're breeding primarily for type, I wouldn't breed in a buck who has such pale points.

I have no idea if they are black based- I'll have to ask the breeder of the buck and doe that I bred him from.

The doe has a fairly pale point though.

I was seeing how he turned out type-wise but have no plans to use him for breeding if the point remains so pale. He's a cute little guy though and I do love his ears!

Definitely has sweet ears!

If the mum has faint points, too, you could be dealing with agouti, chocolate, blue, or any combination of the above. Or she could just have pale points; it happens sometimes. :/

Actually, I remember FinnMouse saying something about c/cch mice having faint points. Their bodies are stone, though, not white or beige. Anybody know anything about faint points and cch?

Here's the buck (left) and doe (right):



She might be chocolate pointed. She does look it!

I like his nose! Good Roman nose.

Could be chocolate or agouti. It's got the streakiness you get out of agouti. Test-breeding the buck to a self could tell you.
