I have a 4 week baby girl that looks almost just like the one in this picture. I'm a newbie. Can you tell me what the color/markings are?

I'm a stay-home mom of two children, soon to be three. I have two dogs and quite a few rodent pets. I'm interested in other animals as well like reptiles, insects, and cats. I run a small rodent rescue out of my home. See my website. :)

Chaminade was a broken brindle. :)

I think my baby girl's colors are paler than yours and I'm not sure about what to call her as far as color, but the markings are so similar. http://gallery.pethobbyist.com/data/146456mamamouseandbabiescrsmall.jpg She's the bottom one in this picture. Do you know about colors/markings or what these mice would be? Thank you in advance :)

Pretty bunch of little ones. :) What colors are the parents? I'm going to say broken brindle for the one at the bottom, and the on that's standing up in the middle looks brindle. The one directly to the right of that one looks like maybe brindle or splashed. If it's a darker color on something other than white, I'd go with brindle, but if the background is white, probably splashed. The greyish ones look lilac, but diluted colors like that are tricky to guess without knowing what the parents are, plus I'm far from being an expert on genetics and that sort of thing. :) I'll see if I can send you a PM with a link on it that might be helpful. :)

On second thought... I can't figure out how to send a PM here, so if you go to my profile there's my Yahoo ID. My e-mail address is that @yahoo.com if you want to e-mail me, and I'll send you the link that way if you'd like.

The dad is a PEW and the mom is the one standing in the middle that you said you thought was a brindle. I was thinking she was, but new to this and wasn't sure. Here's another pic of her, but she's really a little paler than that, and her underneath is almost white. http://gallery.pethobbyist.com/data/146456mamamouse2crsmall.jpg I don't know anything about their lines.

The one you said could be splashed or brindle looks kind of dappled, not any stripey kind of markings, and it's darker and medium markings on a paler, but not white background. I'll try and get a pic of her by herself so you can see better. Is lilac suppposed to have pink eyes, because the colored ones all have dark eyes....

Thank you so much for your help. My daughters and I are fascinated by these little critters. :)

Another thing, only the female babies have the fancy markings. Two males are lilac/gray? and one has a white mark on his head. She had 3 PEWs. Two female and one male. One of the colored females is a cream or bone? color with the tiniest smudges of a sooty grey/ black color on her back.

My email is my user name at ymail.com :)
