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?

Gidget 02-08-2011 06:24 PM

so is he isgoing to turn grey!?

Piaffe 02-08-2011 06:29 PM

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....

Chiilaa 02-08-2011 06:29 PM

If he is not brindle cause by Chimera, then yes, he is going to turn grey :(

Piaffe 02-08-2011 06:34 PM

He better be chimeric :( lol.

I need to get that test done!

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.

Gidget 02-08-2011 06:39 PM

better go get that test done or sit back and wait to find out :P

Piaffe 02-08-2011 06:43 PM

I think it is his winter coat,but we will shall see when he sheds :) or i might get him clipped.... ;)

Chiilaa 02-08-2011 06:44 PM

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.
