    The first one looks like a broken chestnut. Baby colors can be a little pale, but the body color looks brownish, rather than the sort of salt-and-pepper gray of a chinchilla. The eyes are dark,. right? This kid will probably darken up a bit when the junior coat comes in.

    The second has so little color, it gets tricky, but I'm thinking broken opal. I think I can see a yellowish tinge on the nose marking, which would indicate opal rather than squirrel. Those aren't blue eyes, by the way, they are gray, or if you prefer, blue-gray. Blue eyes (as in the Blue-eyed White) are a bright, cornflower blue.
