    What would you get if you bred a Lilac Magpie to a Harlequin? The father of the lilac magpie is a broken chestnut agouti and the mother is a black VM. The father of the Harlequin is a broken chestnut agouti and the mother is a black tort. Any idea of what I’d get? Thanks!

    The most likely kit color is Harlequin
    If the Harlequin carries white/chinchilla/shaded you might get some magpies as well. If the harlequin carries dilute or chocolate you get might blue harlequins, or chocolate harlequins, or lilac harlequins if both (and maybe some blue, chocolate or lilac magpies if it carries dilute/chocolate and chinchilla/rew). If the magpie carries non-extension (tortoise/orange) then you'd also have a chance at orange (maybe even a tort if they carry non-extension and both carry self). Harlequin is the most likely by far and if you did get other colors they'd likely be shades of harlequin or magpie.
