That looks like a fever coat. Also looks like the other black and white kitten may have a bit of gray too. Their coats will grow out eventually.

Thanks for your response! Yes the other black and white also has a bit of gray on its hind end, and so does the Torrie kitten theat you can't see in these pictures. So probably most definitely fever coat I was thinking it looked like it as well, but also curious if it is possible to stay this color. Either way all cats are beautiful, but I am hopeful for unique coloration.

The red one has perhaps some fever coat too. Its most visible on the natural black kittens, but other colors may too have fever coat. Red has a pale nuance on his back, less pronounced redish than the head, for example.

Yes, classic fever coat.

A tortie female, and a black and white "tuxedo" male will be expected to produce:
  • tortie or calico females
  • red tabby or red tabby and white males
  • black or black and white kittens of either sex
They might also produce dilute (blue) or colorpoint if both parents carry those recessive genes, but I'm not seeing any dilute or colorpoint in your litter.

In your pictures, the litter appears to be as expected, in terms of colors. Cute too!
