Babies!

JG's Sunrise, my Blue Tan angora doe, gave birth to eight babies today! The proud pappa is Copper, my copper 1/2 Thrianta buck out of JG's Carmella, a Chocolate Tan angora doe. So half the babies will be short haired. I can't wait to see how many of them are angoras, and what colors are there. During my brief look at them this evening, I saw possible indications of chin (which Copper could have passed on from his mom, who carried it) and non-extension, as well as Tan and Agouti.

Copper was also bred to Pewter, my fuzzy French Lop, who is due any day now, as well. I especially want to see if she has any Tans, as this will tell me for sure whether Copper carries it. This is what I love about working with colors, each litter is a surprise!
