    Top pic I say beige or fawn. Fawn is more orange & bright. I see one berkshire agouti & the rest appear to be mink or havanna (mink rat carrying RED). I breed dumbos in mink & seal point siamese, but I have a lot of work to do on my mink line because they tend to get pretty heavy silvering xD.

    Thanks
    They were suppose to be cocoa and champagn.
    I have their pedigree, but I think it was made up.
    The brown ones have a bluish tint to their fur if you blow into it.

    None of them are agouti.
    Not orange enough to be fawn.
    The top ones eyes are pink the rest are ruby


    The 3rd and last picture show their coloring better.


    I already own several rats, but Im looking to add new colors to my rattery.
    I currently have hairless, dumbo & standard in American Blue, siamese and champagn in self, berkshire and capped.
