Default Chocolate snowflake or Grey snowflake?

Hi!

This is my new baby, she's coming home to join the family on Thursday
Would you say she is a chocolate snowflake or a grey snowflake? The breeder first said she was a grey snowflake but thinks she may be chocolate now.

I have no idea about colours so was hoping someone could clear it up for me

Thanks

She looks like a chocolate to me but I'm not sure she's a snowflake, to be a snowflake 30% of the quills have to be solid white, so basically one in every 3 quills should be white.

She's so young, you might want to wait til she's finished quilling to try to determine her final color.

Thanks guys

She's 8 weeks tomorrow (she was born on the 25th April) so she should be starting her quilling very soon . I get her on Thursday when I'm back from holiday.

FYI, I didn't bath her, it's the breeder that did. Why is it a bad idea to bath her at 8 weeks? She seems fine
