Chinchilla baby

So Mini finally popped, and this is what came out

12 hours old (26. february)



1 day old (27. february)




He's medium tan ebony (hetero).
I think we are going with the name Furrytails' Dino.
We can't quite deside if we are going to keep the little bugger or sell him. But we have 10-12 weeks to decide if we want to keep him
I would prefer to sell him to be honest, but I think Nick is in love
I'm not sure if he has some TOV in him. I guess I should be able to see any signs, but on the other hand, TOV has a tendency to act strange the first couple of months.

Dad: Turbo Chins' Christian
Mom: Furrytails' Nebri

For more info on him, you can check out my blog

Thank you
Mom is so good to him, but dad is not all that happy about kits -_-
The girl from the previouse litter was a bit mean to him, so he thinks all kits are evil

We only have one problem now.
I have no idea if the little guy is TOV.

Note to future breeders: If you want to use TOV keep to Black and Brown velvets >_<

Yeah, that's the mom

Becrac:
TOV or Touch of Velvet is a colour/pattern chinchillas can have. TOV x TOV = lethal factor, so it's quite important to know if there's TOV in the animal.

Why can't you tell if he is TOV? Is it because he's tan and not black or brown?

Maureen:
Not sure how much you know about the genetics in chinchillas, so sorry if it's too basic

TOV is said to be a colour, but imo it's actually a pattern. It gives a dark back, lighter sides and white belly (if no ebony). It also gives a dark mask.
With some colours TOV can be very hard to see. This goes for colours with wite in them, and ebony in them.

Tan is a fancy word for a chinchilla with beige and ebony in it.
Because ebony, like TOV, is more of a pattern than a colour (even though it can make the colour darker), it can be very hard to see TOV in ebony animals.
One of the sure signs of TOV is that "Dark-light-white" pattern, but the ebony cancels that out a bit.


This is his sister from a former litter.
She is a TOV Pink White Ebony.
It's near impossible to see the TOV and the Ebony in her. If she was all white, I would have to call her poss. tov and ebony.
The mom (white girl on the pics with the boy Dino) is a TOV Pink White. I only know this, because af her daughter that has some spots on her body, that shows me she's tov pink white ebony.

So it can be very hard to see TOV in animals. And ebony if the animal is white, but imo TOV is a bigger challenge Evil mutation

Did that make any sence at all?

Sorry if the spelling is bad. I do not have the program installed that checks my spelling on this computer.
