Rex Inheritance?

Post by doganddisc on Sun May 27, 2012 1:26 am

As posted on FMB: I bred a rex himi to a texel himi and would up with a huge litter, culled down to four- now I have what looks like two siamese and two himi or PEW babies. Only one of them with curly whiskers :?

Am I correct in assuming that since rex is dominant, all of these babies should be either rex or texel? The other three babies have straight whiskers and appear to be standard coat. I'm not complaining- I love the standard coat- but I'm quite confused!

Rex can be Re/re or Re/Re since it's dominant. Breeding an Re/re to an Re/re will produce 25% standard coated mice. So It's same to assume that both your rec and your texel are Re/re and not Re/Re! tongue

Thank you Rhasputin. Luck of the draw, I suppose! Apparently I culled all the texels!
