My gerbil just gave birth to a litter of 3 pups today. I haven't taken any photos yet, but I was wondering if anyone knows what color the pups will be? The mother is dark brown with brown eyes and the father is white with red eyes. If you need pics, let me know and I will post some.

I don't know very much about gerbil genetics, but I am a nerd... I found this website: http://hhgerbilry.com/breeding.html if you scroll down to the genetics section it has a list of the different colors of gerbils and what their suspected genetics regarding looks are. I'm guessing they will be dark eyed and dark fur since the white/red combo seems to be recessive, but I'd have to read more to figure that one out for you! If you need any help with the biology terms let me know.


Here is another one with pictures: http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Peaks/8478/illugengb.htm
