You asked if albinos are the least common, and I answered. Don't get mad at me for answering your question.

Had you asked what the most common colour of hedgehog, you might have gotten the answer you were looking for.

if i had a blue heagehog i would name is sonic :D
many ppl still do. (i mean, name normal one's sonic)
i just think that it would be cool to have a dark blue headgehog named sonic. but yea sonic is a cool name for any headgehog. i was about to name nine sonic but i thought snowball was better dont you think :?:[attachment=0:2m7itdpj]09-07-08_0019.jpg[/attachment:2m7itdpj] i mean with his color when he rools up into a ball he just looks like a snowball :D

Check out the Hedgehog Color Guide http://www.hedgehogcolors.com/

It has lots of very technical stuff about color genetics, mutations, etc. Only problem is, that you'd really have to "know your GENETICS" to understand most of it. But it will give you some examples and pictures of the various color possiblities. He does have some "blue dilutes" and "lilac dilutes" posted on his site! Here are a couple examples that came from his website.
There are several problems with this site, not the least of which is the fact that the 2 photos of blue quills are in very young juvenile hoglets - possibly 2 weeks old. There is simply no way one can use such photos as evidence as this is not the adult colouration nor will it ever be! It is a period of time when both the visible and carried colour sets mix and are visible. By 4 weeks this hedgehog will be an entirely different colour and by 9 weeks, that hidden, or carried, colour set will no longer affect the visible colouration.

Let me start by saying that no blue hedgehogs have yet appeared. The mutation required has not occurred yet and is still only speculative. But, if a new mutation should occur, it will occur in the black side of the spectrum, leading to Blue.

The colours that Ryan Dickey claims are neither accepted by the international standard nor are many of them plausible. Ryan has time and time again patently refused to work with the hedgehog community and this is the result - fracture. Fortunately, this fracture has a very small following.

Please, don't follow his colour chart! We have spent 15 years trying to get everyone to speak the same language on hedgehog colours, and I can assure you that no strange new colours that aren't in the HHC and IHA colour guide have popped up in all that time.

Those are the facts, folks

so it is very unlikely that there will ever be a blue headgehog. (by the way i would still name it sonice and if i see a silver headgehog i would name it silver from the game sonic the headgehog) :lol: :lol:
