Default Colours?

Hello everyone! I have two questions today.
1) Is there a good thread on the forum where I can learn more about colours?
I couldn't find any threads or websites that did.
2) Am I correct about Percy's colour? I think he is Dove Banded, but I am doubting myself. Picture below.
Thank you X

It may be my computer (or my eyes) but she looks like she has some yellow also. If that's the case, she is a dove tort banded.

I agree with WinnieTheHam on the color being Dove, BUT unless this is a very young hamster he, is a she. If it is a young pup(8 weeks or so) The two tones would be them changing from Baby fur Gray to adult Dove(brownish orange Gray) ,and could be a He who has not developed in the manly Bits department.

She's still a lovely hamster and I'm very happy for you having her. I love how you caught her in full run in the wheel too.
