Color is not that easy. It's not 1+1=2 with hedgehogs colors. You would have to take into consideration the colors of the ancestors, to have a better idea what the offspring would be.

I would suggest you do NOT breed your hedgehog, if you were considering it. If I remember correctly, you bought Cloud from a pet store, and there is no way to determine his lineage. You wouldn't want to subject future generations of hedgehogs to possible health problems that may be in either hedgehogs genes.

Thanks for your input, Gnarly, i didn't even think about Cloud's health problems. a friend of mine just got Coco and we had considered very briefly breeding them. i was just curious as to what color you think the babies would come out to be. as for breeding... its not actually going to happen

I'm glad you've decided against breeding them.

Perhaps breeding hedgies obtained from pet shops isnt a good idea but i just wanted to point out that any hedgie with lineage or not are suseptible to an array of health problems and lineage is no guarantee to health.
Health issues can occur in both lined and unlined at any time.I speak from personal expirience of course.
Having hedgies with lineage though is of course a major advantage as any conditions in those lines are noted and are obtainable if the breeder reports such a condition.But it's not really applicable to various conditions which are not hereditary.
I myself have females with limited lines but i do know the breeders and where parents and grandparents ect have originated something which of course you cannot possibly know when obtaining from pet shops...so a very wise decision you made indeed.
Beautiful hedgies you have too by the way.
