You asked about Max factor kits.
I had a litter that contained 2 of them in 93. I don't have pictures but I did make detailed drawings.
One interesting thing about them was how color developed in Agouti patterned ones. It came in looking at first like they were going to be tan patterned and then like a saddle marked dog and finally a near normal chestnut. It was very like the color progression of German Shepherd pups.
A friend had an unrelated litter of max factor kits that were chinchilla and went through the same odd pattern of color progression. Anybody else mention that?
I am familiar with a Rad's Max A Million, a black silver martin, that was in the pedigree of my friend's max factors. As I recall he himself was not an import though his dam was out of a German Import.
My max factor litter was totally unrelated to this Max A Million but did go back to an un-named black 1988 English Import buck. Though not closely related, both does who where the mothers of these litters went back to Cottontail breeding though I don't see any imports in either of their pedigrees. Perhaps the max factor gene is more widespread than just the import, Max, it was named after.
