    what were their parents?

    Look like albinos. Albinos come in a variety of shades, so sometimes it's hard to tell.

    And given the random crossing of genes in any individual cornsake, it can be almost impossible to determine what you might get in any single clutch.

    could very well be snows then, but the only way that's possible is if the female carries anery genes (het for anery) and the male carries amel (albino) genes (het for amel). Which he obviously does, or else you wouldn't even have amels, let alone poss. snows.

    Coral snows are a mixture of amel, anery and hypomelanistic genes. Again, given the uncontrolled over-mixing of random genes in the corn snake world, it is very difficult to determine what genes any given individual may carry and not itself show, and it's impossible to determine if an albino is ALSO a hypo by looking at it, but you may just be right about your kids being coral snows, seeing as they're comparatively lighter than the average albino hatchling, and MUCH redder than the average snow hatchling.

    one way to test it out would be to breed the female to a male hypo that does NOT carry amel genes (good luck finding one, lol) and to breed the male to a hypo female, again though--to a female that does NOT carry amel genes (since he obviously does). The idea being that if one or the other is het for hypo, bred to a hypo that does NOT carry amel, you would get normal hypos out of the clutch.

    gatorpit thanks sooooo much for the response i am slowly learning about what genes make the diffrent morphs, i will keep reading on the difrent ressesive genes. my two adults are rescues so i dont know anything about there parentage, i now have 3 healthy hatchlings all similar in color im excited to see the rest of the hatchlings and i will update more pics as the hatch and shed.

    No prob. :) My boyfriend breeds corns, and we're starting a project aimed to breed locality specific red (corn), grey and yellow ratsnakes, with intent to provide genetically pure strains for others to use in their morph breeding projects.

    This is a great corn snake forum: http://www.cornsnakes.com/forums/

    The members there could undoubtedly help you determine what your kids are, and further your education. :)
