I really don't know what color she is. She is basically the same color all over. Her little nose and ears or a tinge darker sometimes but over all she's just a cream color.
Here is here bottom side.

Did you decide on a name for her yet? :)
I think its just gonna remain Piper :D
I just found out last night that I shouldn't breed her to the male I have coming on the 30th either. Like It's not recommended.

She said that its not recommended to breed a tort to a tri or harli cuz it ends up torting their markings (no clue what that means).
She said I should breed her to another Tort or a Self for best results.
I was just starting to think I understood and now I feel like I'm back to square one >_<;

Aw i'm sorry!
Torting the markings just means that it 'muddies' them and makes the colors run together.
Are you going to sell him and get a new buck then? Or keep him for fiber and look for another breeding buck?

I'm not sure what to do. I do like the buck I'm getting so I'll probably keep him for fiber. That is what I wanted to do from the beginning (get fiber).
I don't know if I should look for another buck to breed to her and a new doe to breed to him later? Or fix him and just use him for fiber... It all costs money after all.

I think I have to breed her before a certain point right? I've heard their hip bones fuse if you don't but I thought that was just Guinea pigs. o_O

That's too bad...you could always sell him and buy a different buck...then you save some money that way right?

And yes you should breed her before she turns 1 year old. Their hips do fuse but I've seen a few does that were just over a year and they had litters no problem. But I would rather play it safe and breed her around 8 months :)
Or whenever she wants to breed! How old is she?
