Self blacks

Post by AnonymousMouseOwner on Fri 21 Apr 2017, 4:53 pm

Can self blacks have any other color on them? I wasn't sure where to put this, but since this section has the "varieties of mice" topic, I thought it was fitting enough for here. If a black mouse has white on it, it isn't a self black, is it?

From AFRMA:

AFRMA Fancy Mice - Self
The following are the mouse self colors as recognized by the American Fancy Rat and Mouse Association. These are one solid color with no white markings. See Fancy Mouse Genes or Fancy Mouse Genes: Black-based colors for genetics.
Color is to be even over the entire body, extending to the skin and including the underparts, ears, feet and tail.
General Self Faults – Faded or rusty color; mottling, mealiness or shading of color; light underparts; stray white hairs in the coat; tan hairs around the vent or behind the ears; white toenails.
General Self Disqualifications – White spot on the body; white on the tail.
See the Standards book for additional details on each color.

Maier is a self black; she has a few white hairs, some tan behind her ears, and a white tip on her tail, like the post above says. I can't offer any additional info, though!

Maier would be considered a "poor" self black, I think.

I believe over on TFM, if the mouse's genetics were not known and they had even a small white spot, they still referred to them as "broken." So my Arsinoe is black all over except for a white splotch on her belly, and so I say she's a broken black.. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. Smile

Yeah, I believe so. I just say "self black" anyways. Regardless, she's super cute. Love

I'd say that's broken black as well.

So Holly's a self black, and Blossom is a broken black then, right?

Yes, though I think Holly would be considered "poor" because of her toes.
