Colony Picture Dump

Post by thewesterngate on Sun Jul 08, 2012 8:14 pm

I'm so creative with titles. Anywho. I finally got some shots of my first generation breeders, and some of their offspring! I also have a name theme now, and it's basically various types of fabric. Now some of these are posted in litter threads, but I wanted them in one place. Happy

First off! Generation 1 Bucks.


Dupioni, my sweet Black Tan Angora boy.



Chintz, a Silver Tan and a pain in my backside. He ran off and got into the wall, about a day or two later I found him in a bin with his old girlfriend, her nanny and their pile of babies. Thank the gods he didn't kill any (he sired them, so that's probably why).


Buckram, Pied Agouti Angora...he's so fat. I think he may be overmarked brindle, but he hasn't thrown any.

Generation 1 Does (only the Siamese/Himalayan girls).


Kalamkari, Himalayan Angora (I think?) She has a lovely white body.


Crinkle, LH Siamese.


Fuji, Siamese and a patchwork quilt with that molt mark.

Generation 2 Bucks


Cloque, Silver Tan Angora and the (longhaired) spitting image of his sire, Chintz! Mother was Crinkle.

Fleece, PEW Angora, mother was Fuji x unknown father. He'll be paired with the Siamese/Himi girls.

Fustian, a huge Black Pied (Tan) boy. He really only has pieces of tan right at his belly. Fuji's his mum.

Pekin, RY Angora, Chintz x Crinkle.

Generation 2 Does

Paisley, RY Angora, Chintz x Crinkle

Frieze, Black Pied (Tan), Fuji's her mum.

Surah, Blue Angora, Dupioni x Kalamkari.

That's not all of them, but I just wanted to share. Happy I love the silver and might try to make silver self but I'm not sure how to approach that.

AHAH..HA..SO..remember how I was SO sure Surah the Blue Fox/Tan Angora was female? I was cleaning and suddenly saw that SHE, in the girl grow-out tub with like 10 other females..decided to drop some cojones.

Wow. HE has always been a slow grower I couldn't cull because I wanted blue..but at 4 weeks looked female. Now at six weeks, oh hey, it's a boy. Fortunately he probably still has not hit puberty as I've never seen him chasing girls. He's so timid.

Buckram, Pekin, Paisley and Surah are the cutest! What a lovely little family you've got. That's hilarious how long Surah took to show his, uh, true colors. I would be really interested to know if he grows up to be as stinky and aggressive as other bucks.

Surprisingly, none of my bucks really smell! I have four or five together and I'm separating as they show aggression, then there's all the other boys. I guess I clean it out soon enough, or they don't feel the need to mark as much. Happy

Woohoo! I finally recovered the two mice that escaped. Chintz was caught days ago (in his old girlfriend's drawer-style bin)..but I also caught my little (sterile) dove dutch girl who escaped the same day Chintz did. That's a few days living under the fridge, and I found her in the stove. WTH? Haha..

I call her sterile because she was with a buck since May and has never conceived. Oh well, she's too petite for me to want to breed her anyway.
