hey, i noticed you’ve tagged some of the mice as aby carriers. could you explain what that means? i love your mice. theyre wonderful and i want to kiss them

lilsqueakers:

Heck yeah! Aby carriers is “Abyssinian carriers” ! 

Abyssinian is a gene that is newer-ish in fancy mice? It causes the fur on the hind end to grow in reverse rosettes, offering a bit of a ‘winged’ affect to them! 

It’s a recessive gene- or, its a gene that needs two copies to display!

The father of these mice is a visual Abyssinian, which means the babies got one copy and are carrying the gene! 

They’ll need to be bred back to the sire to produce visual Abyssinian! 

Here’s some google pictures of abys to show what they look like!
