There are only a few varieties in AC maine coons.
Playful and energetic, the maine coons are always jumping around!
Best variety: face streak! and I think green eyes are better for mutations.
Best traits: face streak, chest patch. I like their body shapes too. They are a little bigger than the average cat and can sometimes make mixies look bigger than normal.
Worst traits: I don't like the texture, though some people do.
Maine Coons have a special kind of mutation that no first generations have, but can come up in the second generation or above:
Another interesting note on breeding purebred Maine Coons: the face streak is a somewhat "dominant" trait, and will pass down more often than the lack of a face streak. When I bred a first generation with a face streak to a first generation without a face streak, the face streak passed down 2/3 times (66%).
