Color mutations in mink have a wide pleiotropic effect which modifies their reproductive function (1, 2). Usually, the breeding season in color minks comes later and their fertility is lower than in Standard ones. Additional illumination during pregnancy by stimulating endocrine functions increases significantly fertility in color minks (3).
