Chinchilla Genetic - Beige

Most of the Beige colors sold in the pet shop are Hetero Beige. They have a dominant gene over a recessive gene. So they will produce Standard when they bred to other color. The most common breeding combination of Hetero beige is bred with another Hetero beige because people will have a 25% chance to get a Homo beige.

Homozygous Beige is very rear to see in pet store because it is very hard to control its population and it's very valuable. Since Homo Beige has two dominant genes to present its color coat.. Generally speaking, a Homo Beige will not give birth to Standard kits and that's why they are so valuable

When a Homo Beige mate to Brown/White cross, breaking down the color might be more complicate. See Brown Velvet (Beige and black velvet's offspring), mate to Homo beige, there will also be 25% chance of getting a Homo Beige because Brwon Velvet got a Beige gene in its background
