Gerbil Changing...Colours?

One of my gerbils (when I first bought her anyways) appeared to be a light brown in colour. Now im looking at her and she doesnt appear to be brown anymore, but grey? Does their fur normally change colours?

There are colors that change slightly after molting. Others, like nutmeg, have more noticeable changes. Do you know the name of her color? Here is a good table to see gerbil colors: http://www.agsgerbils.org/Color_Strip/index.html Maybe you can figure out what her color is with that page.

All my C.P. gerbils molt a bit.
Do you have a picture of your gerbil? that may help us understand what you mean by a grey colour. Is this gerbil spotted by chance?

Nutmegs get darker in color, so I don't know.
