Default The Blue Cavy Project

As some of you will remember, I am involved in breeding Blue cavies (guinea pigs) which is a brand new gene in cavies, only discovered three years ago in Denmark.
Well we have had our set backs, losing two of the original Danish imported boars, and several mums and litters, as well as all our litters that could have produced a Blue being all carriers.
However, two weeks ago we had our first Blue baby born

Introducing Blue Moon's 'Bout Time





Obviously he still has some white and red patching which we are striving to breed out, but we are really pleased with his colour, I think it is very clearly Blue.

Aww he's actually really cute! So are they registered like dogs with a centralized organization? That's a pretty cool hobby to have.

Not in the UK, but they are in Denmark and other European countries. Our prefix is registered with the British Cavy Council, and all the pigs have pedigrees, but are not registered themselves.

GORGEOUS!

I always had guinea pigs when I was a youngster and would have some more like a shot if we had a garden
