Is PD's Boy chinchilla?

Post by Mrs. Beach on Mon Dec 03, 2012 8:07 pm

Here he is, son of c^ch/c^e x c^ch/c^e:






Hair parted:



Fox belly:


Pied tail:


When he was young he looked c^ch/c^e with black splashes, then the dark brown grew darker and darker and darker until I can't see the black splashes any more--and he doesn't look brown at all! His fur looks ticked, but he's supposed to be a/a. Is that normal for chinchilla? And one big question is, if he is, how can you tell A/* c^ch/c^ch from a/a c^ch/c^ch?

Here he is on Day 8. He's the darkest of the three:

My guess is at/a or at/at cch/cch Spl. You lost the splashes as he got older because the difference between black and chinchillated black is so minimal that it's no longer noticeable. Chinchilla dilutes black but only in that it makes it seem somewhat off-black, like a sable (not marten sable, but sable the color, also known as so-dark-a-brown-that-it's-black).

The difference between A/* cch/cch and a*/a* cch/cch is that the chinchilla does dilute A. It takes out all the warmth and dulls the black a smidge. You lose the golden and the brown, and just end up with the black/slate/white bands instead of black/brown/golden bands on the hairs.
