I knew this time would come... what color are the babies?

Hi everyone!

My chins Tokyo and Ninkimono had 2 babies! To be sure I have their colors correct, can you help me with that? From previous experience, it seems I am totally colorblind or something! I believe one is hetero-beige? ...and the other ebony? If so what type of ebony? I need schooling, please help!

The black one is very active but really small. Any advice I should be given on any special treatment and attention?

PS... HI JADE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looks to be a hetero beige and a dark hetero ebony to me.

Did you get a weight on the babies? What color are the parents?

Congrats Lin! The beige one could almost be a tan, depending on belly color. Tans can change so much as they grow. You may have to wait and see.

As far as the little one, make sure it's nursing. If you see the bigger one pushing it out of the way, you may need to rotate the larger one out every few hours to give the small one time with mom alone (don't take the small one away at all, just the large one). If it doesn't gain weight or isn't nursing, you might be looking at handfeeding. It looks awful tiny - you might have a fight on your hands here. Good luck hon!

Looks like a dark eb, but it still looks pretty wet. It may be 'homo eb,' may not be - another wait and see thanks to the ebony gene.

Jade brought up a good point. The one could very well be a light tan, but it's a wait and see. The first thing I thought was het beige.

The other one is a really dark ebony, could be homozygous (sp?) ebony!

I think the dark one of course is either a dark or extra dark eb. I wouldn't place "homo" on it yet, way too soon to tell.
The second looks pastel, but it could be my monitor. I'd just wait and see. Both are adorable though, congratulations!

Wow, thanx everyone! You guys are great!

The parents are med to dark tan (somewhere in there--I had gotten him thinking he was going to darken to a nice chocolate but didn't happen lol) and the mom is med hetero ebony. I'm sorry, I don't have a scale! I need to get one quick.

I shall patiently wait to see how the colors end up.

I'll make sure the black one keeps nursing well. So far nursing is great. Thanx Steph!

And thanx again all! Please send the tiny one your love!
