More babies!

Winkie gave birth to nine this morning, one did not make it, but the others are fat & happy so far. Three whites and 5 otters, blue and black. It appears Winkie may be homozygous for the Tan pattern gene. I know she is homozygous for wideband, hopefully she also carries angora and some of these babies will be fuzzy... cross your fingers for me!

A couple of the babies have very reddish skin where their tan will be - I have come to link that to good color. I sure hope so! We'll see.

Good luck on Winkie's litter!

Keep me posted; I'd love an Otter Angora.
