Beige nutria

Among almost two dozen colored rocks, beige nutria is perhaps the most popular. She is pleased to breed amateur nutrients, and industrial farms

In the vastness of our country, she came from Italy in 1958 in a company with pink and silver nutria. And immediately won the popular love, which is due to several factors

First, the fur of beige nutria is very beautiful and perfectly suited for sewing hats, fur coats, collars, etc. It has a high wear, not a mark, warm and pleasant both to the touch and outwardly

Representatives of the breed beige nutrients “hair” have a brown with smoky beige “taste”. They can be a little lighter and a little darker (all three subtypes of beige rock are distinguished – light, medium and dark). The overall color can range from beige plus gray to dark with a touch of silver. Coating hairs from representatives of this breed are colored unevenly. At the roots they can be chestnut or beige, and the apex of them is white. Lighter individuals have downy fur (underfoot) from light beige to light brown tones, and in “brunettes” it is dark chestnut

There is a variety of beige nutrient breeds that have chestnut gray color. They are similar in many respects to the silvery nutria, but they have a purely white zone of covering hair, which is the main difference. The abdomen of these animals is covered with beige down, the back is perfectly gray, and all naked skin areas of a gray-violet hue

Abroad, in particular Poles and Canadians, the breed of beige nutria is called “Greenland sapphire” or simply “sapphire”. The eyes of the animals – under the color of fur – brown

Another argument in favor of the breed of beige nutrients is that its representatives reproduce on a par with standard and even more active (which can not be said of all colored rocks). The average number of puppies in one litter is 5-7, and litters are 2-3 per year

The cubs are born viable, grow well and develop. With due care, deaths at an early age are reduced to a minimum

Beige nutria belong to the recessive type of colored breeds of these fur animals (which means – weaker). As is known, in the case of mating with the dominant types, recessive genes go to the background, giving way to the leader

Thus, if we cross a male beige breed nutria with a female of the standard breed, we get the offspring of silvery color (slightly clarified standard). Usually, male silver crosses are killed in order to obtain a skin, and females are reduced to beige males (using reverse crossing)

As a result, half of the puppies born will be beige, and the second half will be silvery. If the crossbred female connects to a male of the standard breed, then how lucky it is: either all the animals will go to their mother, or to the daddy, that’s all; color variations will not. You can pair the representatives of the first hybrid generation among themselves, we’ll get the layout: beige puppies – 25 percent, silvery ones – 50 percent and standard color – 25 percent

In order to guarantee beige nutria, it is necessary to cross breed “in itself” – that is, exclusively beige with beige

In addition to high-quality beautiful fur and excellent fertility, beige nutria have other positive features. So, their meat is absolutely in no way inferior to the taste and useful qualities of meat of other breeds of this unique animal with orange teeth, funny face, fluffy fur and a long-veneer tail!
