In the world there are the following chinchilla colors:
Standard grey chinchilla colors is natural! There are several shades of the colour saturation: light, medium, medium, dark, dark, extra-dark. The color of the fur on the back and sides from light-grey to dark-gray, and the belly is white. Quality standard is considered to be offspring! Therefore, it is recommended to seat with color chinchillas to improve their fur, shapes and sizes!
Distinctive features of Black velvet are the black diagonal stripes on the front and hind legs, black chinchilla colors on his head, a black back and a white belly. High-quality black velvet – dark, with bright transition zone between the white belly and dark sides The darker side, the better the color. This is the dominant color. Genetically Black velvet is a bearer of two genes (Standard + Black velvet). When crossed the color with the standard chinchilla colors with an equal probability of being born standard kids and black velvet. The little black-velvet chinchillas black only the head, the back is lighter in color, but for the year of the dark. Black velvet cannot exist in the homozygous state, therefore it is not recommended to his seat with velvet.
The chinchilla colors was launched in 1955 on the farm “Redding” in North Carolina (USA). Named by the name of the breeder Blythe Wilson. Chinchillas can vary greatly in appearance, the color of their fur varies from pure white to silver. The eyes and the ears are black. White Wilson is The dominant color contains a lethal gene and does not exist in the homozygous state. In connection with this are advised not to cross the two white chinchillas between themselves, not to reduce the number of puppies in the litter. From a purely white chinchillas with equal probability can be obtained as a pure-and-white and silver, and the mosaic of chinchillas.
Beige chinchillas are divided into recessive, which can only exist in the homozygous state, and the dominant, which can be as heterozygous, and homozygotic. Fur color – from light beige to dark brown with a clarification on the sides and a clear transition to the white abdomen. Brisket white. Shade of fur must be a cold tone. Is characterized by uneven figure and game tones fur. Hair is the zone color, undercoat and the tip of the hair are dark shades from beige to brown, and the hair light. Beige gene in addition to the dyeing of fur gives the painting of the eye and ear. The ears of such chinchillas pink, very often with freckles, his eyes when daylight from dark-brown to ruby. In the chinchilla can interbreed with any color. But the most suitable pair will be white, pink, white-pink velvet, brown velvet, black velvet, white velvet, white Wilson.
Homo beige chinchilla you can only get from couples in which both parents carry the beige gene. Externally from Homo beige chinchillas they can be distinguished on a brighter fur, very light, the ears, the lack of zonal painting and a light pink eyes. Color of these chinchillas uniform, it is very rare to see areas of fur, where the tip of the hair is colored a little darker. My eyes were red or pink, meet with a blue rim. Homo beige chinchilla carries two beige gene, so in pair with the standard all kids will be only Homo beige. A great couple for Homo beige chinchilla will be white-pink velvet, white-pink, brown velvet, black velvet, Homo beige, white Wilson, white velvet.
Chinchilla white-pink color may look like pure white with small beige spots, as well as pure beige with small white spots or stripes. Ears – pink, sometimes in freckles. Eye color from pink to dark-ruby color. In the genotype white-pink colours are: white, beige and standard gene. The presence of white allows chinchilla be a mosaic, by analogy with the color White Wilson, as well as white with beige “veil”. Particularly valued mosaic of white-and-pink chinchilla with clearly defined patches of white and beige chinchilla colors. Occurs and looks very attractive beige chinchilla with the pure white tail. When crossed pink-and-white chinchillas with the standard can be obtained: white and pink (25%), beige (25%), white Wilson (25%), the standard (25%) of chinchillas.
White velvet is the result of a cross between a chinchillas, having in its genotype and white velvet gene. Chinchilla White velvet carries the genes of the standard, the Black velvet and White Wilson. When crossed with a standard chinchilla colors will give: White velvet (25%), Black velvet (25%), White Wilson (25%) and standard (25%) of the young. White velvet it is not recommended to hybridize with chinchillas wearing white and/or velvet gene, since both of these genes are lethal. The best couple for a white velvet is beige chinchilla with this combination you can get the greatest number of color options (up to 8 colors): white/pink, white-pink velvet, brown velvet, white velvet, black velvet, white Wilson, standard.
Brown velvet (KB) is one of the most beautiful chinchilla colors, is the result of crossing velvet and beige chinchillas. Beige gene is manifested in the color of the eye (from pink to brown, with a ruby tint) and pinkish brown ears, sometimes “covered” freckles, dark brown mask on a head, a darkening of the back and the sides and the diagonal stripes on the front and rear paws. The General tone of color – from light to dark brown. The tummy and chest – and – white. In the childhood mask practically invisible, chinchilla colors is very similar to, only with age is manifested brightness and saturation of color. The main fade is from 3 to 8 months. When crossed KB with the standard can be obtained: KB (25%), beige (25%), Black velvet (25%) and standard (25%).
Rare and absolutely beautiful hybrid. This is a very beautiful chinchilla, velvet gene makes the head over round and dark, just obscures the back and lightens dark side and the shovels, and chinchilla colors gene turns the stomach. The combination of gene and gene black velvet gives a stunning result. Gloss from velvet, full of coal color wool well as from both genes. Dark diagonal lines in the background of the main black coat colors are almost not visible. With chinchilla this color is very dark. Like any chinchilla with genome, can be a carrier of light, medium, dark and extra dark.
It is not recommended to hybridize with chinchillas , having in its genotype velvet gene. A great couple to the velvet will be: white-pink, pastel, white.
It is very dark, coal-black chinchilla. Chinchilla colors – stunningly beautiful chinchilla! Use a great popularity among the Amateurs and for professionals. The price of the true chinchilla colors can be very high. Often extra dark can be confused and only an experienced breeder can see the difference and to distinguish homo of extra dark hetero.
Sometimes chinchilla this color is very similar to the white, and only the presence of the parents gene chinchilla colors and more saturated and bright color spots to tell you that this white chinchilla. There are two main variants of painting of white chinchillas, with a predominance of black or white in color. Both options are very beautiful. It is possible that the main color of the chinchilla white with bright black markings of different localization, or Vice versa – the main color of fur is black with white spots.
Pastel chinchilla colors can be obtained by crossing beige and ebony chinchillas. Color varies from light-beige to dark brown, depending on the number of received genes. Distinguish light, medium, dark, extra-dark and chocolate bed. Tummy most often has the same color, sometimes a little brighter than the main color. With the age of the fur color in pastel chinchillas becomes darker.
Pastel homo Beige
It is a rare and beautiful color. The babychin this color cream-caramel shade of fur, saturation depends on the number of gene chinchilla colors, light-pink ears and the same eyes. Color of these chinchillas uniform, it is very rare to see areas of fur, where the tip of the hair is colored a little darker. My eyes were red or pink, meet with a blue rim.
Pink White Ebony
This is a fairly rare breed and very beautiful chinchilla colors. Looks like a white and white-pink chinchillas. Fur color from pure white to beige colour tone, the same way the body may be present spots of various localization from beige to dark brown. Not knowing the parents of white-pink it is often difficult to determine the presence of chinchilla colors gene, so as chin looks like a simple white and pink. And sometimes determine the presence of gene can be only when crossed with not chin look further on to the offspring. This is a very interesting color mutation, can receive both pure white chinchillas, and chinchillas with different localization and saturation of the spots.
It is a recessive mutation, is manifested only in the homozygous state. When crossed with other colors are obtained only media purple gene. To get a violet chinchillas it is necessary that both parents were purple or one of the parents was the bearer of chinchilla colors. Color of the coat varies from light-grey to a beautiful saturated purple and lavender. Belly white.
Very nice and not less than a rare color. Fur color light-violet-beige, something similar but chinchilla colors with a purple haze color flat and monotone without a pattern, belly white. Chin such color bear in itself at the same time beige and purple genes in the homozygous state. Very beautiful light shade of fur especially playing in the sunlight. When crossed a chinchilla with violet can be born purple and beige shades of purple.
White violet chinchilla colors is a combination of white and violet. This color appearance is similar to a White cloud, with the difference that the White violet spots and haze are not gray, like Wilson, and purple, which makes it a coat soft and delicate colors. Spots may be of different shape and size. Chinchilla this color are the white and purple genes in good condition. When crossed a chinchilla with violet can be born purple and white violet. When crossed with beige violet you can get a very rare colour – white – and – pink violet. White violet it is not recommended to hybridize with chin, with white gene, as it is lethal and this can reduce the number of kids in the offspring. When crossed with the standard all the offspring will be 100% of the bearer of violet.
