The humming is from Epic. The black and white piggy!! It's very low and she only does it if she doesn't know I'm there. Storm seems to be the better feeder parent. Epic, not so much... Thank goodness I've gotten good at this hand feeding thing!
Well the dilute gene is (sex-linked) recessive so the males can carry one copy and look normal (if females have the dilute gene they show it though), so some of the female babies could be dilute.
Here's a color calculator. If you keep most of the genes the way they are but just change the "non dilute" to "split dilute" for the male only then press "calculate cross" or "Punnett square" at the bottom it will show that about 50% of the daughters should be dilute, none of their sons will look dilute but 50% should carry a recessive dilute gene. That might not have made any sense but basically, if the baby is dilute (or brown, that gene works in the same way as dilute) then it is definitely female.
(calculator link is kinda long, didn't work the first time )
