Anonymous asked: The rat rescue momma is gorgeous! I have a question, of course this is hypothetical, because you wouldn't breed, and because Charlie is fixed, but if Charlie and her were to mate, what marking would the babies have? I know that's a really weird question.
Natasha is very pretty :)
And sure, I know alot of about rat/mouse genetics despite the fact that I will not breed.
Charlie is a black blazed. Black is a very dominant color, blaze is an extremely recessive marking.
Natasha is a champagne hooded. Cham is a very recessive color and hooded is a dominant marking.
Likely, a pairing between them would end up with alot of black, agouti, and possibly some blue hooded, with a slight chance of lighter colors. Maybe a few small headspots, wedges, or barebacks would be thrown in there.
Speaking from experience, Lisa’s Alan was one of my rescues. His mother was a fawn hooded. His father was a rex, dumbo, blue, spotted around his face. All of the babies were hooded, no variation. They had 4 agouti, 2 fawn, 3 cham, 2 blue, 1 blue agouti.
All in all it might be an interesting litter, but it might not be :P
Now Kairi and Charlie would make a gorgeous litter!
Ahhhh! I want a new Zelda wallet(I have one but want to switch back and forth with), a Zelda hoodie, a Zelda necklace, Zelda phone case!
I want them all!
Gus Gus wishes everyone a Happy Spring and a Happy Easter!
