Default genetics question

I know coat length can be controled/predicted by genetics but can a puppies coat colour be predicted by their parents genetic backgrounds and if so what would you get from a red and cream with rescesive blue and a chocolate red and cream.

im terrible at math and algebra...lol

just curious.

well i think its very hard to predict, altho i read some stuff about the blue gene once, and both parents need to carry that for the blue to come out inthe puppies, however i also remeber reading that chocolate some how had something to do with the blue gene.
Think thats the great thing about a chi litter you never know what your gona get

thanks guys, i know blue and chocolate are both dilute genes and one shouldnt breed a dilute with a diulte as youll get washed out colouration, however a dilute with a hidden dilute could get some blue or chocolate pups...or somehting along those lines if i rember right, its more me getting lost on which colours are dominant in which pairings and such..as i said algebra isnt realy my thing lol

you should try to never breed any blue gene to another blue gene or dilujte gene as you can get health problems in the skikn and eyes etc
