Color List and Genotypes

The following are to help you get better acquainted with colors and their genotypes. Remember that the dominate gene is what shows through and each gene has two pairs.  So “A_” just means that in order to be agouti they must carry on “A” but could be hiding a “at”(tan gene) or “a”(solid) in their genetic makeup.  So the “_” just indicates anything recessive to the shown letter could be there.
