Lilac Agouti

It isn't quite certain whether this mouse is actually a lilac agouti. If it is, it could be leaden.

Quick Look

Lilac agouti is agouti with both brown and blue dilutions. In other words, it is blue cinnamon. This variety isn't by far a strikingly beautiful one, as the red / yellow pigment of a cinnamon is diluted into cream and brown into lilac.

In order to breed lilac agoutis, you will need to introduce the blue dilute gene to a cinnamon. Fastest way to do this is to breed cinnamon to lilac and then the resulting cinnamons to lilac, continuing with lilac agouti to lilac agouti crosses.
