Nimir's grey color test came back!

Got Nimir's GREY test back from animal genetics and he is Gg...which means heterozygous,right? I need to send in a sample to UC Davis for the chimeric test....

Does this mean he could still go grey if he is BRINDLE and not chimeric?

Yes it does. Since grey is dominant, just one copy is needed. Are there any tests that they can do for chimerism?

Not likely since janelle (the brindle expert lol) thinks he is chimeric. She told me there is one person at UC Davis that does the chimeric test. I believe if he is chim he will stay the same. If he is brindle there is a chance he may completely grey....I think....

Hey,i don't know if this has to do with anything but I was looking at the photos of when you first got him up untill now. It might be because it's winter but his brindling isn't as apparent as it was when you first got him.It's still very obvious he is brindled but looks to have faded on his back side and not some many stripes.

To be honest, I think he is going to go grey. His brindling looks like it has darkened quite a lot since you got him, and his face just screams grey to me.
