This is an ongoing research page, but I will endeavor to compile as much information on the correct names for piggy colours as I can. If you read something here that you don't think is correct, please let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'll correct it asap.
A fantastic (and much more thorough reference point) is found on Malibu Cavy Stud's Page here.
A basic guide to breeding for colour can be found here.
A pretty comprehensive guide to breeds/coat types can be found here (including breeds not found in Australia)
