    Default Litter color

    Dam is black has chocolate on both sides of her pedigree. Father, grandfather(both sides)

    Sire is chocolate, his pedigree is predominately chocolate.

    What would be the guess of litter colors?

    She's choc factored (Bb) so you'll get blacks and some chocolates most likely.

    Well, the dam is chocolate-factored as her sire is chocolate. With litter sire being chocolate, statistically, litter should be half black, half chocolate. You don't mention yellow anywhere but unless both parents are yellow-factored, there won't be any.

    I saved this link from a previous thread awhile back. It has been very helpful to me.

    My experience all black, until that single little brown girl decides to make an appearance at 3:30am; hours later than everyone else, and loud enough to wake up the whole house .

    I am guessing it will be 70% black and 70% chocolate, as well as 70% female, but that is just a wild guess
