Possible Outcomes?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Do any of you genetics experts know what the possible outcomes of breeding a tortie female and a grey and white tabby male are?

You could get calicos/dilute calicos (only if mom is also carrying the dilute gene.

Also, red/red-whites, cream/cream-white, black/black-whites, blue/blue-whites

And some would have tabby markings.

Depending on whether your classification of "grey" is blue or brown?

well he's not brown so i'd say blue (is that what grey is? )

Grey = BLUE
Orange = RED
Buff = CREAM
Grey/Tan = Bluecream
Orange/Black = Tortoiseshell (black/red)

If you have two blues (grey) then that's all you will get unless one is a blue tabby, then you'd have some solid and some with stripes - but all blue.

The blue and black would produce both colors if the black was a dilute carrier. If not, then you'd have all black.

If they are solid colors and don't have stripes like the tabbies then you'd get solid blues only. Or in the case of the black father, you could get both blue and black solid colors if the father has the dilute gene. Otherwise you would get all black.

Blue is the dilute color of black and is recessive.
Cream is the dilute color of red and is recessive.
