My female is a diluted calico Persian. She has pink outlines on her eyes and nose. She mated with a solid white male Persian with black outlines on the nose and eyes. What will the babies look like ?

Hard to say other than “roughly half white solid” without knowing what the stud is under the white, and whether he has any copies of the dilute gene.
Also, what do you mean by “dilute calico”? Dilute black, chocolate, or cinnamon tortie w/ white? I’m guessing blue? Do either of them carry chocolate or cinnamon?

This is something your mentor should be assisting with.

As above, “dilute” is not a colour, torties come in a number of dense and dilute colours.
White is a mask, knowing the genetics of the parents or DNA testing him is a must to be able to predict what colour he is masking under the white, and what else he’ll carry to then throw in his kittens.

Hopefully they’ve also been DNA tested for PKD, PRA, Pk-Def and had their kidneys scanned. And the white BAER tested.
