I know this question has been ask and answered probley 100 times, sorry I can't seem to find it.

I am curious what are the odds that 2 leu 100% hets will produce a leu?

Is it 1 in 4???

Or is it luck of the draw, maybe they will and maybe they won't???

Anyone have a 100% het paired up? what have you gotten so far?

(FYI... I have none of the above, I am currently owned by BBs grin )

Yes, you are correct. 1 out of every 4 (or 25%) of the joeys will be leucistic with 2 100% leu het parents.

OK, that is what I mean... statistically it is 25% chance but they could have 5 or 6 joeys all hets before they have a leu (or never have a leu).

In other words it is not 1 of every 4 JOEYS is a leu but each joey has a 1 in 4 chance of being a leu. Right?

Yes. I believe that's correct. There is no guarantee that you'll ever get a leu.

You are correct that it is a 1/4 chance of each joey being a leu. You are never guaranteed to get a leu.

Two 100% leu hets will average about 25% BEW babies over their lifetime together. Out of 24 joeys, 6 should be white. They could have 18 hets then 6 BEWs. I remember Sheila saying that one of her pairs had 6 normal joeys and then 2 white, so that would still be 25% (2 out of 8).

Queenduck... roflmao I didn't even see that the first time, where can I get a 110% het (JK) grin

What about a lue x 100% het. That's a 50% chance right? Well what if you have a 66% het and a lue and the 66% het proves out. Then he's officialy 100% het right? Will their babies still have a 50% chance?

Actually I'm really curious about all this too.
Ok. so if 25% is lue and %50 het.. what is the other 25%??
oh, and what is the difference with a lue and a BEW? I thought that was the same and Albino was the red eyed. See.. I'm confused. heehee

A leu is a black eyed glider with white fur. BEW=Black Eyed White. Just 2 names for the same coloring. Albino has red/pink eyes.

Also a glider can't be part leu/ part het. It is either leu or leu het. Het just means they carry the leu gene. And the % is the chance that they carry it. A 50% het has a 50% chance of carrying the gene.

No, I ment she said there would be 25% chance of white, 50% would be hets and what would the other 25% be? That's what I meant. I knew you can't be a part het and part leu. Just didn't say it right I guess.

I think she meant there's a 25% BEW and 75% hets.

ok, so where do Mosaics come from? They seem like they would be maybe from a leu? I was thiking maybe they would be the other 25%?

Actually, when two 100% leu hets mate, their joeys will have 25% chance of being a leu, 50% chance of being a leu het and 25% chance of not carrying the gene at all. I don't think it would be very likely that 2 hets would NEVER produce a leu. Over their breeding lifetime, if they really are 100% hets, there would have to be some white babies in there somewhere.

Mosaics are a completely different gene.

25% White
25% Grey
50% Hets

The reason we call the offspring 66% possible hets is because we are only counting the grey babies. Because 25% are white and are obviously not hets that only leaves 3/4 of the babies being possible hets.

So two out of three being hets is 66%.

Megi, that is why every gray joey out of 2 het parents is called a 66% het. There is a 66% chance that they carry the gene and a 33% chance that they don't. Otherwise all gray joeys from hets would be 100% hets.

leu x leu = leu joey 100% of the time

leu x leu het = leu joey 50% of the time (all gray joeys would be 100% hets)

leu het x leu het = leu joey 25% of the time (all gray joeys would be 66% hets)

leu x normal = 0 leu joeys, but all joeys would be 100% hets

Yes, if a 66% proves out, he is no longer considered a 50% het, but a 100% het.

Since one of them is a leu, all joeys would be 100% hets, regardless on whether the mate is a leu het or a normal. (Unless, of course, the joeys is white from a het mate.)

Mosaics in the US originate from wild caught mosaics. Mosaics are also capable of producing platinum and ringtails. You can have a white mosaic, a plat. mosaic, a ringtail mosaic, etc. With mosaics, you only need one parent to display the gene in order to produce mosaics. There is no such thing as a mosaic het. Not every offspring of a mosaic will be mosaic, though.

It is also possible to have a platinum that is not mosaic. Platinum has popped up randomly. Sheila produced one with a wf and a leu het.

I have Comet & Stardust..

Comet was a 50% possible Leucistic het.. and Stardust, being the only daughter of my Stuart (RIP heart ) is a 100% het.

Last July they had their first joey, a single Leucistic female..so Comet proved out and is now also a 100% Leucistic het.

Then in December they had twins, a Leucistic female and a possible 66% het male.

laugh Some people have all Leucistics.. some get 1 Leucistic and 1 het.. some people get all hets.

I guess it's the luck of the draw? wink

Wild caught is generally Indonesia or Australia. Not wild caught in the US.
