Gorgeous! And that one mismarked blaze! You're so lucky living in the UK. Here, markings like that would put us on megacolon watch >.< Glad they're all doing well :)

What adorable little jellybeans!

That's interesting, kksrats, does the UK not have megacolon or is it just that the blaze gene there isn't linked to megacolon? I've never heard anyone mention that before.

Someone else could probably explain it better than I can, I just know that megacolon is not as much of a threat as it is here (I can't say for sure that it's not a threat at all because there still may be cases). I think it's due to much stricter laws about breeding for feeders and whatnot. In other words, the US needs to take note and step up their game.

Thanks kksrats, that's something I'm definitely going to have to look into, I've read a few bits about megacolon but never realised it might not be such a big issue here in the UK (fingers crossed).
