    I only ordered 2 colors (tuxedo and gold speckled) but I have light stripy ones, dark stripy ones, all yellow ones, and the easy ones to figure out are the chocolate-black tuxedos.

    So what are my light stripy:

    and dark stripy chicks:

    I don't have a pic of the yellow ones cause there are only 5 and they are just all yellow so no point in hunting them down with the camera.

    Here's all the various colors in one spot but not dry and fluffy yet:

    the yellow with stripes are goldens (even if some have lighter stripes that's what they are). The all yellow ones are whites (possibly A &M or english whites), and you have normal wilds and normal tibetans, and normal tuxedos (they aren't chocolate or black tuxedos black tuxedos would be pure black with yellow chest and throat, and chocolates would be a solid milk chocolate color).

    They are very cute [​IMG]


    edited to add, the one tuxedo in the last pic does look very dark, so that one may possibly be a black tux but if it has any other markings other than black on its back (like red or tan) it's a normal tibetan tuxedo. [​IMG]

    The tuxedos range in color all the way from nearly tan with some stripes showing so they almost look like the dark stripy ones to black. The stripy ones also overlap from the light to the dark. There is no set dividing line in the colors except the 5 yellows that have no stripes or different shades. Some of the light stripy ones though barely have stripes so they are more like dots. I just picked some that were obviously different.

    as for tuxedos, theres red tuxedos, black tuxedo, tibetan tuxedo, and chocolate tuxedo as all the potential colors that breeders can get right now. Sam mentioned working getting golden tuxedos, and I am possibly on to normal brown tuxedos, but it's all luck of the game of genetics. [​IMG]
