"First Frost" Litter

Dam: Unmarked Agouti - het for Russian Blue and Mink. 

Sire: Russian Cinnamon Velveteen

Litter Size: 2 (all bucks)

Aims:

This litter was part of my Cinnamon line and this litter was it's 6th generation.
My aim for this pairing was to produce some non-Russian-based does in the litter to hold back, but the genetics wizards had other plans!

Results:

Named the "first frost" litter as they were born on the morning of the first frost at our farm!

I could tell that both kits were very obviously bucks a few days after birth, but I was still quite stumped on which variety they were.
Russian Dove Agouti has never popped up in the rattery, so this was a first and a great learning experience.

In this litter was the aforementioned Russian Dove Agouti and a Russian Blue Agouti Velveteen

They have both been pet homed due to no suitable breeding plan for them here.

Edit 19/12/23 - I can blame my festive fatigue or I can own up to my brain mush, but previously I stated the Russian Blue Agouti was a dumbo.
He is very clearly NOT a dumbo. Thank you for dealing with my stupidity.
