changing colours

(correct spelling )


Enzo's last owner was around last night, she was amazed at how light in colour Enzo is now, and to be honest i hadnt really noticed but i must say she is almost a silver grey now, a LOT lighter than when I first got her. She has all but lost her red colouring around her body now so in no way could i now describe her as 'red factor'.


Has anybody else ever seen this? If i think on ill post up some photos of her, both now and 2yrs ago. Im not concerned at all, id love her no matter what colour she is and she seems in fine shape.

Re: changing colours

You must have improved her diet. When I first got my congo grey, Pugwash, she had only ever eaten sunflower seeds and her tail was kind of light pink - not a good look for greys. After months of slowly getting her into fruit and veg it turned into that beautiful lustrous red we all love.
